New Delhi: A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made ‘Hindu’ remark over Vivek Tiwari’s killing, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lodged a complaint with the state police against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader.
The complaint was filed by BJP spokesperson Ashwini Upadhyay in Tilak Marg Police Station. Further, he has also demanded an FIR against Delhi CM. “Complaint lodged in Tilak Marg Police Station under Sections 153A, 295A, 504 & 505 of the IPC and Section 67 of the IT Act against @ArvindKejriwal Ji. Request @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice to take apposite steps in accordance with law @LtGovDelhi @HMOIndia @rajnathsingh @KirenRijiju (sic), ” BJP spokesperson said in a tweet.
Notably, Kejriwal tweeted on Sunday, “Vivek Tiwari was an Hindu, then why did they kill him? BJP leaders are sexually harassing Hindu girls across the country and getting away with it. Please take off the curtain from your eyes. BJP is no protector of Hindus. They will not even think twice if they have to kill all Hindus to gain power (sic).” The controversial statement invoked sharp reactions from all quarters.
Apple Executive Vivek Tiwari (38) was shot on Saturday by constables Prashant Chowdhury and Sandeep Kumar while he was going to drop his colleague Sana Khan. It is alleged that the cops shot Vivek after he refused to stop his car. A Special Investigation Team is investigating the case. On Sunday, a forensic team recreated the scene of the incident and inspected the two vehicles involved, Vivek’s SUV and the police motorcycle, and collected samples.
Questioning the police action, Kalpana Tiwari claimed that her husband was innocent and demanded justice for him. She said that the state police is trying to malign her dead husband’s character. Earlier, Kalpana had written to CM Yogi Adityanath, seeking Rs 1 crore along with a job in the police department as compensation.
