“Two first information reports were registered against him at Sadar Bazar police station. He was named an accused in both cases. He was arrested on Tuesday and sent to judicial custody till April 4,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Deepak Saharan.
The first case was registered against Janghu for leading a protest march of workers from the Gurgaon-Manesar-Neemrana automobile belt on February 19 during the Jat agitation. The march was against the brutal lathi-charge that was done on the Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India workers in Tapukhera near Bhiwadi in Rajasthan in February.
The SHO also said that Janghu was made to hear the entire order clearly, asking him not to hold the protest during the Jat stir, but he didn’t respect the law. He was arrested under Sections 147, 149, 186, 341, 342, 506 of the Indian Penal Code.
Another case was registered against him for holding protest outside the Honda corporate office in Badshahpur the very same day. Sourced from the Administrative department of Honda revealed that Kuldeep Janghu was prohibited from visiting the Honda corporate office or to get in touch with their workers’ union.
