Lawyer appears six days after summons

Vikram Chauhan, the most aggressive lawyer involved in incidents of violence at a court last week, was arrested after he appeared before the police on Wednesday, six days after he was summoned. He was released on bail after over six hours of questioning at Tilak Marg police station, the police said.

It is alleged that Chauhan led a group of lawyers who attacked journalists and JNU students at Patiala House Courts Complex on February 15 and February 17. The attacks occurred when JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was produced before the court.
Despite being caught on camera, Chauhan claims that he was responding to provocations by ‘anti-national elements’.

“I am a true Indian, not affiliated to any party. The media is trying to portray me as a goon. If praising Mother India and saying Vande Matram makes me a goon then so be it,” Chauhan told media outside Tilak Marg police station.

He added that footage shown on TV channels were fabricated. “I have full faith in the law and order or else I would not have showed up here,” Chauhan added. Chauhan, who hails from Haryana’s Rewari district, did his LLB degree from Rohtak.
