Shazia Ilmi files FIR against AAP supporters for trolling her
Delhi BJP leader Shazia Ilmi on Tuesday filed a police complaint accusing AAP supporters of 'abusing' and hurling 'sexual innuendos' at her on social media.
Ilmi said that she was trolled over her video statement on Twitter, where she had attacked the Arvind Kejriwal government over the involvement of sacked AAP minister Sandeep Kumar in a sex tape.
It also came on the day BJP expelled Savitri Khatri, its Narela ward candidate for the upcoming municipal polls, for allegedly allowing Kumar to campaign for her.
"I left the AAP because of bad elements in it and our party (BJP) did the right thing on Tuesday. Because of Kumar, Savita Khatri had to pay. But, because of Kumar's misadventures, I am now facing abuse on social media. They are posting nasty comments with ration card jokes and sexual innuendos. Some of it is so vulgar, I cannot even describe it in words," she said.
Ilmi, who had switched to the BJP from the AAP, alleged that users of the microblogging site who were "abusing" her were "AAP supporters". When asked, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia condemned the trolling of Ilmi and promised strict action against AAP volunteers if found guilty.
