Home Ministry Seeks Delhi Police Report On Fight Between Cops And Driver



Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said he has spoken to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and asked him to take immediate action.

NEW DELHI: The Home Ministry Monday sought a report from the Delhi Police after a video surfaced online showing a violent clash between a driver of a three-wheeler and a few policemen in northwest Delhi, a senior official said.

Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said he has spoken to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and asked him to take immediate action.

A five-minute video of the incident shows sword-wielding tempo driver Sarabjeet Singh being “controlled” by a group of officers, as they beat him up with lathis and drag him across the road.
Even as a brawl between a Sikh tempo driver and policemen in North West Delhi’s Mukherjee Nagar took a political turn on Monday, the Union Home Ministry sought a report from the Delhi Police regarding the issue.

A large number of people, particularly from the Sikh community, gathered outside the Mukherjee Nagar police station on Monday night, demanding sacking of all policemen who thrashed a tempo driver, police said.

In a video from late Sunday night, an ACP-rank officer could be seen being chased by protestors. He had gone there to pacify the protestors.

The issue had taken a political turn with Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the BJP MLA from Rajouri Garden, claiming that the policemen had insulted the man by attacking his turban.

Sirsa staged a protest outside the Mukherjee Nagar police station demanding sacking of the cops involved in the incident.



The Home Ministry has also sought a report from the Delhi Police into the Mukherjee Nagar incident. Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said he has spoken to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and asked him to take immediate action.

A delegation of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee’s (DSGMC) led by its president Manjinder Singh Sirsa called on Delhi Commissioner of Police (CP) on Sunday and demanded an enquiry in connection of an alleged assault on driver of a mini taxi at Mukherjee Nagar area of north Delhi.

"BJP delegation led by Shri @rpsinghkhalsa ji called on me today regarding the incident under Mukherjee Nagar Police Station in New Delhi, I spoke to CP Delhi, instructed for immediate action and to submit a detailed report," Reddy tweeted.
