“Accused a BJP member”: AAP allegation after woman dragged by car

One of the accused in Delhi’s recent horror crime, in which a woman died after being dragged by a car through the streets, is a BJP member, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleged today.

“Manoj Mittal, one of the five accused arrested in the case, is a BJP member and Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena and senior officials of Delhi Police of deliberately concealing this information,” said AAP’s chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj.

Sharing photographs of Mongolpuri police station, where the case has been registered, Bhardwaj said it is ironic that right next to the police station is a hoarding that has Mittal’s photograph and identifies him as a BJP member.

Bhardwaj told the media that the eyewitness, who informed police about the woman being dragged through the streets, made 22 calls, but the city police still failed to catch the accused red-handed.

Bhardwaj went on to say: “Even if a polythene gets stuck under our car, it starts making a noise, and we get down and check. Here, a body was dragged for 12 km. And police are saying the music was so loud that the accused were clueless about it.”

“I am demanding a probe into the sexual assault allegations. I dare DCP Harendra Singh to arrest me. Such audacity! Journalists are being threatened, forced to delete tweets,” AAP leader said, while slamming Harendra Singh, who yesterday dismissed allegations that the woman was raped and warned that those posting such charges on social media would face action.

The victim, Anjali Singh, was a resident of Aman Vihar in north-west Delhi. Her mother has alleged sexual harassment. “Her clothes cannot be completely torn off. Her entire body was naked when they found her. I want a full investigation and justice.”
