'Don't implicate innocent youths'

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused the government of trying to falsely implicate eight innocent youths in the incident of violence at India Gate on Sunday which led to the death of Delhi police constable Subhash Tomar.

 He asserted that his party will stand by the side of youths and oppose the government’s move tooth and nail.  

Speaking to the media, Kejriwal said that the police had failed to produce any evidence before the court against the youths who were arrested in connection with the violence on Sunday.

They were picked up from different places and had no specific allegations against them.
He denied the police claim that AAP leader Manish Sisodia secured bail for them.
Their family members secured it for them, he said.

He said that one of the youths, Chaman Lal had been active in AAP. “It is highly regrettable that the police are trying to falsely implicate innocent people and defame some organisations and people.

 Aam Aadmi Party warns the government that the AAP will stand by them till the last breath if there is an attempt to implicate innocent youths, particularly students, and to affect their future,” said Kejriwal.

He asserted that the real culprit behind the attack on the constable should be caught and punished and not the innocents.

He alleged the government was trying to falsely hold responsible Baba Ramdev, former Army chief General V K Singh and the AAP for instigating the violence during the protest against rape.

Kejriwal distributed the copy of the FIR lodged against the youths and pointed out various loopholes in it.

He said that when the court asked if anyone was caught from the spot where the constable was attacked, police answered in negative.

The court also asked about allegations made against the arrested youth in the FIR.
Police admitted that there was none.
