Arvind Kejriwal demands probe into street fight between cops and driver in Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar

A police officer was injured on Sunday when he was allegedly attacked by a tempo driver, who chased him with a sword after an accident between their vehicles.



Arvind Kejriwal demanded strict action against those guilty

"Delhi Police brutality in Mukherjee Nagar is highly condemnanble and unjustified. I demand an impartial probe into the whole incident & strict action against the guilty. 
Protectors of citizens can't be allowed to turn into uncontrolled violent mobsters," Arvind Kejriwal tweeted.

The deputy commissioner of police (northwest) said that the incident took place on Sunday evening after a police vehicle and tempo had an accident.


Vijayanta Arya, deputy commissioner of police (northwest) said that the incident took place on Sunday evening after the police’s vehicle and the tempo met with an accident.

Three policemen have been suspended for their unprofessional conduct in handling the matter and further legal action will be taken on the basis of the enquiry, they said.

The sequence of the incident was not immediately clear as some videos showed the Gramin Sewa driver chasing policemen with a sword in his hand, while others showed policemen thrashing him with lathis in an attempt to overpower him.

The incident soon took a political turn, with BJP MLA from Rajouri Garden Manjinder Singh Sirsa claiming that the policemen insulted the man by attacking his turban. Sirsa, a member of the Shiromani Akali Dal, was protesting outside the Mukherjee Nagar police station until late on Sunday. 

He also demanded that the policemen involved be sacked.

The incident occurred in Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar area on June 16. The police claimed that two of their men were injured in the attack. However, The Gramin Seva driver alleged that the cops attacked them first.

“If it is found that names have been deleted wrongly, not only guilty officials will be punished but the exercise will be carried out in all assembly segments in Delhi, Election Commission said,” he told reporters. The AAP has said a “verification inquiry” directed by Kejriwal found that nine names of AAP volunteers were deleted without proper verification of their addresses. 

If lists of deleted names are uploaded on Election Commission website political parties can at least help people get their names added to the voters’ list, he said adding the commission has rejected the demand to provide soft copies of deleted names to political parties.
