Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga returns to Delhi after drama over his arrest

Delhi BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, who was on Friday morning arrested by the Punjab Police, was taken back to the national capital by the Delhi Police. Bagga was taken back to the national capital after the Haryana Police handed him over to the Delhi Police. 

Delhi Police have also filed an FIR against Punjab Police for the alleged kidnapping of Bagga.

On Friday morning, Punjab Police arrested BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga from his Janakpuri residence. Following outrage by BJP leaders, the issue has snowballed into a dramatic tug of war involving three state police forces.

The Punjab police team taking Bagga to Mohali was intercepted en route by Haryana cops. Delhi Police also registered a kidnapping case on the basis of a complaint by Bagga’s father. 

Haryana Police surrounded the Punjab Police vehicle carrying Bagga and escorted them to a police station in Kurukshetra. A team of Delhi police also reached there.

Aam Aadmi Party leaders defended Bagga’s arrest and that the Punjab Police acted in an unbiased way. They stated that the action was taken after Bagga refused to cooperate with the investigation even after notices were sent five times. 

Saurabh Bhardwaj, a senior AAP leader, said they have collected information about Bagga who often uses “obscene, toxic and hateful language” on social media.

Meanwhile, former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today strongly condemned the arrest of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga by the Punjab Police in an arbitrary manner. He also asked the Punjab Police not to succumb to the dictatorial diktats of an outsider.

Capt Amarinder said, when Punjab Police should be focused on handling the deteriorating law and order situation and insurgency threat from Pakistan, they are being assigned the job of fixing Kejriwal’s political opponents in other states. The former Chief Minister specifically asked the Director-General of Punjab Police to stand up against the misuse of his force.
