Jolly questioned by Delhi police
New Delhi, Nov 30: After smearing ink at Shoma Chaudhury's residence, BJP leader Vijay Jolly was questioned for nearly six hours on Friday by the Delhi police.

Jolly, on Thursday drew a lot of flak for defacing Chaudhury's residence in protest to the on-going Tarun Tejpal sexual assault case. Jolly had justified his actions saying that he was unhappy with the way Shoma had acted and refused to help her female colleague.

Jolly later alleged that the police action was a ploy by the Congress party to keep him away from the upcoming assembly elections. He said that he was being targeted at the behest of a Congress minister.

Police: Decision on Jolly will be taken after examining statement

Police officials said that any decision on Jolly will be taken after examining his statement. "He was questioned to ascertain what prompted him to register his protest in such a manner," an officer said.

Jolly has been booked under Sections 143 (unlawful assembly), 149 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed in prosecution of common object), 427 (mischief causing damage) and 341 (wrongful restraint) of the IPC.

Senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh had earlier said that Jolly had tendered his apology to the party. "Insulting anybody is not the culture of the BJP. Vijay Jolly even offered his resignation from the party post. Since he has offered his apology, the matter must now come to rest," Singh said.
