A BJP delegation met Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik on Thursday regarding the Chandni Chowk temple vandalisation case. The delegation, which comprised of Vijay Goyal and Hansraj Hans among others, reportedly accused Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Imran Hussain of involvement in the incident.
The delegation also provided a CD evidence to the Delhi commissioner that establishes the minister's involvement in instigating the mob in the wee hours of June 30.
The delegation also raised its concern over the MLA being present at the location when the incident took place.
The report read: Since yesterday media reports have emerged showing the presence of the Delhi Minister Sh. Imran Hussain at the spot. The MLA claimed that he had gone to the area on that night of July 30 after the SHO called him, but the DCP (Central) Mandeep Singh Randhawa has denied the claim saying -- "Neither I nor the area SHO had called Imran Hussain to the spot. He came on his own accord." This false claim of Sh. Imran Hussain makes his presence suspicious and points to the complicity with the conspirators of the planned attack.
The complaint also pointed out that the MLA in question and his family members have been involved in several wrongdoings and misconduct.
Here is the full copy of the complaint
The incident took place on Sunday night when a minor scuffle over parking space in Delhi's Chandni Chowk turned into a brawl. A group of men from one community beat up a man from a different community and vandalised the temple nearby.
The incident has since incited communal stand-off in the area.
Protests outside the police station the next morning led to several people getting injured. The protest turned ugly when persons from the second community pelted stones at the agitators.
The police has made multiple arrests in the case but the residents still await justice.
