  • Four Punjab police officials reached at residence of Kumar Vishwas
  • FIR has been registered against the poet and former AAP leader
  • Vishwas took to Twitter and hit out at AAP leadership

Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and noted poet Kumar Vishwas on Wednesday morning alleged that a team of Punjab Police visited his residence in Ghaziabad. Although Vishwas tweeted the pictures of cops and trained guns at AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, he didn't disclose why the police visited him and what was the matter.

According to details available with India TV, the Punjab Police has filed an FIR against Vishwas in connection with his statement against AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal during the Assembly polls in the border state earlier this year.

Sources said that four cops arrived at Vishwas' residence early morning to hand over a copy of the police document.

Vishwas in his tweet sought to warn Mann against 'the person sitting in Delhi' (Arvind Kejriwal) saying the latter will 'betray you'. 

"You are now giving Punjab's power to the person sitting in Delhi. One day, he will betray you and Punjab. The country should remember my warning," he tweeted in Hindi.

Notably, Vishwas has been at loggerheads with Kejriwal ever since he quit the Aam Aami Party four years ago. Vishwas, a former confidante of Arvind Kejriwal, had stoked controversy during the Punjab Assembly election by saying Kejriwal was ready to take support’ from the fringe and separatist elements to win the Punjab elections in 2017.

"One day, he told me he would either become CM (of Punjab) or first PM of an independent nation (Khalistan)," Vishwas had said.

A few days back, BJP leader Tarun Chughhit chided AAP's Punjab government over the registration of cases against two party leaders -- Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga and Naveen Kumar Jindal. He accused the ruling dispensation of politicising the police force in order to settle political scores.

The Punjab Police had recently booked Delhi BJP spokesperson Bagga, who had been attacking AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal over his remarks on the movie 'The Kashmir Files'. He was charged with making provocative statements, promoting enmity and criminal intimidation, following a complaint by an AAP leader. The police had also registered an FIR against Delhi BJP's media cell head Jindal for allegedly sharing on his Twitter handle a "doctored video clip" of Kejriwal on April 6.
