More drama over Tajinder Bagga's arrest, Mohali court issues fresh non-bailable warrant
New Delhi, May 07: In fresh trouble, a Mohali court has issued a fresh non-bailable warrant against BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga and the slugfest between the AAP and the BJP escalated into protests and name-calling.
But even as Bagga and the BJP launched tirades against the AAP, a court in Mohali issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Bagga for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and criminal intimidation), among other charges.
The arrest warrant was issued by the court of Judicial Magistrate Ravtesh Inderjit Singh.
In its order said, "Keeping in view the contents of the application and the fact that sufficient opportunities have already been granted to the accused to join the investigation and despite that accused has failed to join the investigation."
"It is necessary in the interest of justice, to issue non-bailable warrants of accused Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga for 23.05.2022, who is evading arrest, in order to facilitate the investigation," it said.
"It has now been proven that they just want to book Tajinder Bagga in some case or the other... Delhi Police is present here in Janakpuri, they will be with us in all legal actions & we will cooperate with them," said Preetpal Singh Bagga, father of Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga.
Bagga, also the national secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, was held in connection with a case registered against him in Mohali last month. After bringing him back to the capital, he was produced before a magistrate late on Friday.
Condemning the arrest of its leader Tajinder Singh Bagga by the Punjab Police here, the saffron party on Saturday staged a protest outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence and called him "a dictator".
Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta also alleged that with Bagga's arrest, it was clear that the Aam Aadmi Party's national convener had "misused" the Punjab Police for personal benefit. "Kejriwal is a dictator. What was Bagga's crime? He just asked for Kejriwal's clarification on his remarks on '(The) Kashmir Files'.
He was not allowed to wear a turban during the arrest," Gupta said, adding that the BJP will "not tolerate the insult to the turban".
