Tajinder Bagga Arrested: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga was on Friday morning arrested by the Punjab Police from his Delhi residence. He was arrested by the police based on a complaint registered with its cybercell. Bagga is the national secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM).

According to reports, Bagga was booked by the police after AAP leader Sunny Singh filed a complaint against him. The AAP leader said that Bagga had made provocative statements and spread rumours. He added that the BJP leader even attempted to create religious and communal enmity. 

"BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga arrested by Punjab Police," Aam Aadmi Party's Uttam Nagar MLA Naresh Balyan tweeted.

"Today morning following due process of law, Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has been arrested from his home in Janakpuri, New Delhi. He is being brought here and will be produced in Court. Further investigation being done by SIT of SAS Nagar Police," Punjab Police said in a statement.

"FIR registered on May 1 by PS Punjab State Cyber Crime, SAS Nagar against Tajinder Bagga on a complaint of causing instigation, criminal intimidation to cause violence, imminent hurt by publishing false and communal inflammatory statements on social media," the statement added.

According to police, Bagga was served five notices to come and join the investigation. "The notices were duly served upon. Inspite of that the accused deliberately did not join the probe. Today morning following due process of law, Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga was arrested from his home in Delhi."

BJP leader Kapil Mishra said that Bagga was arrested and taken away by 50 cops from his house. 

"A true chieftain, he cannot be intimidated or weakened by such antics. Why so much fear of a true Sardar?" he tweeted.

'Bagga illegally arrested'

Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor slammed AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and accused the Punjab government of misusing the state government machinery against opposition leaders. 

"BJP strongly condemns arrest of BJYM secretary Tajinder Bagga," he tweeted.

Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta said that Bagga was illegally arrested. "Police didn't allow him to even wear his turban. Complaint filed over manhandling of Tajindar Bagga by his father. Kejriwal's Hitler-like act will cost him. Punjab Police acting on directions of Kejriwal."

Bagga has been highly vocal against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on social media. He came under fire from the AAP, which is ruling both Delhi and Punjab, for his tweet against Kejriwal over 'The Kashmir Files' movie. Last month, the Punjab Police booked Bagga on the charges of making provocative statements, promoting enmity and criminal intimidation. The case was registered on a complaint of a resident of Mohali.
