As the Punjab Police left with Bagga, the Delhi Police reacted quickly, filing an abduction report at the Janakpuri police station against their Punjab counterparts. Kurukshetra’s crime branch stopped a Punjab Police convoy escorting Bagga to Mohali near the Khanpur Kolia National Highway-GT Road crossing and questioned the officers.
The BJP leader was then taken into prison and returned to the national capital by the Delhi Police, who were not far behind. Bagga gave a victory sign with his fingers to the reporters and cameras who had been crawling around him all day as he was taken to his car by the Delhi police.
The Delhi Police filed a kidnapping case against the Punjab Police on Friday, as a team of officers from the Bhagwant Mann-ruled state was transporting the BJP leader to Mohali.The BJP leader will be protected by the Delhi Police.
According to Delhi Police, Mr Bagga’s father filed an abduction report at 12:35 p.m. yesterday, and the FIR was filed at 12:41 p.m. following that, they applied for a search warrant in Dwarka and contacted police in Haryana.
After getting a message from Delhi Police, Haryana Police stated they halted the car transporting Mr Bagga to Mohali. However, Punjab Police officers claimed that they were stopped by Haryana Police near Kurukshetra at 11:30 a.m., one hour before the complaint was filed.
Bagga claimed assault and said that “marks of the assault were recorded in the medical tests done at the hospital.” The Delhi Police will provide security to Bagga until the case is resolved.”
Mr Bagga alleged that the Punjab Police team did not present him with a warrant before arresting him.
“I told them to let me tie my turban when roughly eight persons picked me up. I was denied the opportunity to wear the turban and slippers. I was thrown into the car. The Punjab police took me hostage. The local police department was also kept in the dark. As they do with a terrorist, over 50 police officers arrived“.
The Punjab Police had detained BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga in Delhi. According to initial reports, 50 police officers arrived in 10-12 cars to arrest Tajinder Bagga at his home.
Bagga was taken to a police station in Haryana after the Delhi Police accused the Punjab Police team of not following proper protocol following his arrest earlier in the day. Several BJP members close to Bagga used Twitter to announce the leader’s arrest.
Tajinder Bagga’s father confirmed the news. He claimed that two police officers entered the residence first and began speaking cordially. At that point, he and Bagga were the only ones in the house. Meanwhile, the BJP politician dressed up and went outside.
After exchanging pleasantries, several more police officers entered the residence with force. When they first entered the residence, Tajinder Bagga’s elderly father attempted to make a video of their brutality, but one of the officers pulled him inside and attacked him.
Bagga was then taken from the residence and arrested by the police. His father claimed that during the process, they would not even allow him to put on his turban, despite Bagga’s repeated requests. “They also took his phone,” he added.
India TV aired Tajinder Bagga’s statement during coverage of the demonstration outside CM Kejriwal’s house on March 30. “I feel the 100 crore Hindus will never forgive him,” Bagga said in the statement, “for the way the biggest genocide in India’s history after independence was mocked in Delhi Assembly, and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal claimed the story of Kashmiri Pandit’s genocide on which the movie The Kashmir Files was based on was a lie.”
Tajinder Bagga has repeatedly made the same statement, stating, “Jab tak woh (Arvind Kejriwal) maafi nahi maangte unhein chain se jeene nahi denge,” which translates to “We won’t let him live happily until he apologises.”
His comment was a familiar phrase, and there was no danger in it, but the substance of it was lost in repetition and translation.Bagga was charged by Punjab Police for his criticism of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who insulted the film “The Kashmir Files” during the Delhi assembly’s budget session, calling it a “jhoothi film.”
The film depicts the sufferings of Kashmiri Hindus during the genocide that took place in the late 1980s and early 1990s in Kashmir. As Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga stated in a tweet, the FIR against Bagga was subsequently dismissed the next day.
The Punjab Police has been charged with “abduction” and “assault” by the Delhi Police Department. Bagga was arrested by Punjab Police from his West Delhi home early Friday morning in connection with an inflammatory comments investigation.
Bagga’s mother claimed that the cops refused to let her son tie his siropa before arresting him and attacked his father as he tried to record the incident on film. She also called Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister, a “daadagiri.”
On Friday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court denied the Punjab government’s bid to detain BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga in Haryana. Advocate General (AG) Anmol Rattan Sidhu called the Haryana Police action “a violation of law,” claiming that everything was proceeding according to plan until the Haryana cops intervened. The Punjab administration also asked the court to prevent the Delhi Police from crossing the Haryana-Bagha boundary.
