BJP alleges Congress hand in Bhima Koregaon violence
Hours after the police said they would investigate Congress' hand in Bhima Koregaon violence, BJP alleged that letter recovered from accused Rona Wilson's house establishes the link.
Sambit Patra showing the letter in a press conference, said, " This letter's means of communication as to how violence can be perpetrated. Bhima Koregaon incidents started on 31 Dec'17 & culminated on 1 Jan'18 and letter was just during at that time frame."
"This letter isn't just a letter, it strips every cloth of modesty Congress party was trying to wear. They've been exposed before people. Dalits were being used as tools," said Sambit Patra on letter recovered from the house of Bhima Koregaon violence accused Rona Wilson.
Earlier, Ravindra Kadam, Joint Police Commissioner, said, "In one document there are references but till what extent it is right or wrong can be said after a further investigation."
"Letter on funding has references to Elgar Parishad. Many organisations were involved in organising Elgar Parishad but not all have links with Maoists. Sudhir Dhawale's name has also appeared, said the Joint Police Commissioner.
"If required we will summon Jignesh Mevani as a part of the investigation," he added.
Rona Wilson is one of the sic persons arrested by Pune Police with the help of Delhi Police on Wednesday.
The police arrested Rona Wilson, activist and Jawaharlal Nehru University alumnus and another activist Rana Jacob, both from Delhi. Sudhir Dhawale, a Dalit activist and office-bearer of Elgar Parishad, was arrested in Mumbai. Activists Shoma Sen, Mahesh Raut and lawyer Surendra Gadling were arrested in Nagpur.
