Four AAP MLAs booked for assaulting Vijender Gupta

New Delhi: Four AAP MLAs were booked for allegedly assaulting Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta, two city mayors and others at the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal here.
The MLAs--Jarnail Singh, Akhilesh Tripathi, Jitender Tomar and Sanjeev Jha--were named in the FIR, police said, adding the case was registered based on a complaint by Delhi BJP general-secretary Ravinder Gupta at the Civil Lines Police Station.
The leader of opposition had alleged that AAP leaders and workers "misbehaved" with members of a BJP delegation at Kejriwal's residence. They had gone there to discuss about the relief to traders hit by a sealing drive against illegal commercial establishments on January 30.
The complainant also alleged that woman mayors of the BJP-ruled north and east civic bodies, Preety Agarwal and Neema Bhagat, respectively, along with LoP Gupta and his personal assistant were "attacked" by the AAP MLAs, who were accompanied by bouncers.
The Delhi BJP on Thursday had demanded immediate arrest of the AAP MLAs named in the FIR.
Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari had said that the BJP was trying to find solutions to the sealing issue and had gone to Kejriwal's residence hoping to discuss the matter.
"We never expected this kind of treatment for elected members by a Chief Minister and it is very apparent that the violence was at the instance of the CM himself," said the Delhi BJP president.
Reacting to the allegations, Kejriwal had said that television cameras were present inside the room during the meeting and had captured what had happened.
