AAP to approach apex court against Delhi Police

 Angry and hurt by the police’s violent action last week against its protesting workers who were demanding lodging of an FIR under sections of rape at Gokulpuri police station, the Aam Adami Party (AAP) on Monday announced that it will approach Supreme Court for action against the ‘rogue policemen’.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, Arvind Kejriwal alleged that AAP workers were deliberately beaten up by the police in Gokulpuri to avenge the suspension of  ACP B C Ahlawat who had  slapped Beenu Rawat, while protesting in another case of police indifference last month.

“Police targeted our workers because we have pushed them to take action in several rape cases earlier. However, we will fight their dictatatorial attitude and file an affidavit in this matter with the Supreme Court demanding judicial intervention for proper investigation in the case and compensation for the victims,” said Kejriwal.

AAP workers were protesting outside Gokulpuri police station demanding registration of an FIR in the gang rape case of a woman from Bihar when it brutally beat up some of the protesters including Beenu Rawat’s brother Narender.

Instead of filing an FIR, police personnel beat them up and arrested 18 people including Narender who was sent to Tihar along with others.
