New Delhi: An FIR has been lodged against BJP MP from Jharkhand Nishikant Dubey and his wife Anamika for allegedly demanding Rs two crore from a businessman for his Lok Sabha polls campaign, Delhi Police told a court here on Thursday.
Complying with the court's order for registration of an FIR, the police filed its report before Metropolitan Magistrate Dheeraj Mittal saying their probe into the case was going on.
'It is submitted that in pursuance of the order dated April 3, 2014 passed by this court, a case has been registered in Police Station Tughlak Road ....As per instruction of the Station House Officer (SHO),' the police said.
It told the court that the FIR has been registered under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation), 384 (extortion), 452 (house trespass) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC and investigation was going on in the case.
The court had, however, made it clear that registration of an FIR 'does not imply that the police will immediately arrest the accused persons'.
The court had ordered registration of FIR while hearing a petition filed by Delhi-based businessman Sandeep Sharma under Section 156(3) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).
Sharma had alleged Nishikant, a Lok Sabha MP from Godda constituency of Jharkhand, and Anamika had on November 19, 2013 forcibly entered his house at Golf links here and threatened him to hand over Rs two crore for the parliamentarian's 'political ambitions'.
