Following the incident in Jahangirpuri on April 16, BJP MP Hans Raj Hans of North-West Delhi met with Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana on Tuesday. In an exclusive interview, the BJP MP claimed that the Delhi Police Commissioner has told him that the real perpetrators of violence will be nabbed shortly.
More riots are being planned in the country, according to the BJP leader, in an attempt to ruin India’s image ahead of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s arrival. Hans Raj also chastised power-hungry political groups, advising them to keep the country peaceful.
Hans Raj Hans had previously visited the violence-plagued region on April 17 and went through the circumstances that had developed following the fighting. The BJP leader, who arrived in the early hours of Sunday, was seen chatting with police officers and going over security arrangements. He stated that the situation would be made public as quickly as possible, and that the perpetrator would be identified.
A clash broke out during a Hanuman Jayanti procession in northwest Delhi’s Jahangirpuri neighbourhood on April 16, injuring police officers. Stone-pelting was reported, and some vehicles were set on fire, according to the police.
On April 16, a FIR was filed under Sections 147, 148, 149, 186, 353, 332, 323, 427, 436, 307, 120B of the IPC, and Section 27 of the Arms Act. According to the most recent reports, 14 people have been arrested in connection with the violence that resulted in the injuries of nine people.
The situation is under control, according to Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana, who also stated that appropriate additional force has been deployed in Jahangirpuri and other sensitive locations. Senior officers have been ordered to stay in the field and keep a close eye on the law and order situation, as well as patrol.
Several vulnerable places were patrolled by police on Sunday night. While Sanjay Sen, a senior police officer, denied rumours of unrest in regions of North-east Delhi, which suffered riots in 2020.
Police stated that there is no conflict and urged people not to trust rumours circulating on social media about the rally fight.
