However, vehicles carrying Bagga, who has been very vocal against Kejriwal on social media, from Delhi to Mohali were stopped at Kurukshetra in Haryana. Sources said that Haryana police were discussing a number of issues with their Punjab colleagues.
There is no official word from Haryana police yet.
As the situation escalated with AAP and BJP trade charges, the Delhi police filed a kidnapping case based on Bagga’s father’s complaint that some had come to his home in Janakpuri in Delhi around 8:00 and taken his son away.
Punjab police say in a statement that Bagga will be transferred to Punjab and will be taken to court.
Bagga (36) was arrested this morning from his home after a proper police procedure, the Punjab police said while claiming that despite receiving five reports, he did not take part in the investigation.
Last month, Punjab police charged him with provocative statements, inciting hostility and criminal threats. The case was filed following a complaint by AAP leader Sunny Ahluwalia, a resident of Mohali.
The FIR, which was registered on April 1, referred to Baggi’s comments on March 30, when he was part of the BJP youth party’s protests outside Delhi’s top ministerial residence.
A BJP spokesman in Delhi was criticized by the AAP, which controls both Delhi and Punjab, for his tweet against Kejriwal over the film “The Kashmir Files”.
Bagga’s arrest provoked a strong reaction from the BJP, which accused Kejriwal of having “dictatorial thinking” and “abusing” the Punjab police force controlled by his party.
Punjab BJP leader and party secretary-general Tarun Chugh tweeted: “How Kejriwal abuses the Punjab police is reprehensible. The Punjab police have arrested Bagga from his home.”
“They behaved inhumanely towards Baggi and his father. But remember (Arvind) Kejriwal Ji, your actions like this can not scare a true Sikh, “he said in a tweet.
The head of the BJP in Delhi, Adesh Gupta, said that a complaint had been lodged at the Janakpuri police station in the capital of the country because the Punjab police had beaten Bagga’s father.
“FIR was put on the Janakpuri police station because the Punjab police beat Tajinder Bagga’s father.
“Sending 50-60 police officers in Punjab to the house of young BJP leaders, forcibly lifting him and having his elderly father beaten is proof of Arvind Kejriwal’s dictatorial thinking,” he tweeted in Hindi.
This morning, Kapil Mishra, the leader of the BJP in Delhi, claimed that “over 50 police officers in Punjab had arrested Tejinder Bagga from his house. It seems that Arvind Kejriwal used the powers of the Punjab police to silence Bagga”.
In a video posted on Twitter, he said that the Punjab police were “abused” against the activists and not to maintain law and order in the state.
Delhi BJP spokesman Praveen Shankar Kapoor said the party strongly condemned the arrest of Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga.
“It is very shameful that the Kejriwal has started a political abuse of power and the AJ-led Punjab police to intimidate their opponents. Every citizen of Delhi stands with Bagga and his family at this time of crisis,” he said.
Following the arrest, Punjab police said in a statement: “The defendant was issued five notices under Chapter 41A CrPC to come and participate in the investigation. The notices dated April 9, 11, 15, 22 and 28 were properly published. Despite this, the accused did not intentionally enter the investigation. ”
“On Friday morning, the accused has been arrested from his home in Janakpuri in New Delhi, following a fair trial. .
The FIR against Bagga was listed under the relevant IPC sections, including 153-A (promoting hostility between different groups on the basis of religion, race, location, etc.), 505 (anyone who submits, publishes or distributes a statement, rumor or report) and 506 (crime).
According to a Punjab police statement, the FIR was based on a complaint of “incitement / incitement / criminal threat to cause violence, use of force, imminent injury in a pre-designed and orderly manner by making / publishing provocative, false and societal statements through its media interviews” and through his Twitter posts “.
Last month, former AAP leader Kumar Vishwas and parliamentary leader Alka Lamba were also convicted of “anti-inflammatory statements” against Arvind Kejriwal.
In April, Punjab police also filed a lawsuit against Naveen Kumar Jindal, the leader of the BJP in Delhi, for sharing on Twitter a “medical video” of a media interview with Kejriwal.
FIR v. Jindal was filed by Mohali police on the basis of a complaint lodged by Punjab’s lawyer and Haryana Supreme Court.
