Police file case over scuffle during AAP protest
A case has been registered following a scuffle between Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters and police during a protest led by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal near Rail Bhavan here, an official said Wednesday.
"We have registered a case under various sections, including rioting, on the basis of two complaints," a police official told IANS.
The case was registered against "unidentified people" at the Parliament Street police station.
According to a complaint by a police officer, the chief minister and his supporters violated ban on any gathering of five or more more people, under Section 144 (joining unlawful assembly) of the Indian Penal Code, which was imposed in the area ahead of the Republic Day Parade.
The complaint also said Kejriwal provoked his supporters to join the protest.
The other complaint lodged by another police officer said stone pelting by AAP supporters caused injuries to 19 policemen.
Police said video footage from CCTV cameras installed in the area has been collected.
During the two days of Kejriwal's sit-in, clashes took place between AAP supporters and police personnel when over a hundred supporters broke the barricades and entered the site. At least 11 supporters were also injured.
Kejriwal called off his sit-in Tuesday evening after Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung intervened.
