Kanjhawala killing: AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj claims one accused is a BJP member, CM Arvind Kejriwal demands death penalty for all 5 accused
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has made a big allegation against the BJP in Delhi’s Sultanpuri police station area for dragging a girl for several kilometers in a car and killing her. AAP’s chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said that one of the accused involved in the incident is a member of the BJP.
He further added that Manoj Mittal, one of the five accused arrested in the case, is a member of the BJP. He said that LG Vinay Kumar Saxena is trying to save senior officers in the Delhi Police.
Sharing pictures of Mangolpuri police station, Bhardwaj said it is ironic that right next to the police station there is a hoarding, which has Mittal’s photo and identifies him as a BJP member. Responding to AAP’s allegation, Delhi BJP media cell head Harish Khurana said that the police have arrested the accused. According to a PTI report, he said that the culprits should be given the harshest punishment, irrespective of which party they belong to.
