'Kicked, punched me': Youth Congress Prez Srinivas BV on Delhi Police manhandling party workers

New Delhi: 

Amid the ‘Satyagrah’ march by Congress leaders, the chief of party’s youth wing Srinivas BV accused the Delhi Police of manhandling him while protesting against the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for probing Rahul Gandhi in a money laundering case related to National Herald newspaper. 

BV posted a video where the police can be seen brutally kicking the Congress activist while carrying him to the van stuffed with the party workers protesting against the central investigation agency. 

The Delhi Police came under fire when it allegedly entered the Congress headquarters forcefully and lathi charged the workers present inside on Thursday. The whole Congress unit and its supporters condemned the Delhi Police for its actions as the latter failed to give reason behind entering the headquater premises and attack the leaders. 

Following the Police brutality, the General Secratary Randeep Surjewala, who was also detained on June 14, asserted that a FIR should be filed against those police personnel who entered the party headquaters. 

“In an act of absolute goondaism perpetuated by the Delhi Police at the instance of the Modi government, the police today forcibly entered the national headquarters of the Congress here and beat up party workers and leaders. This is patently criminal trespass. The goondaism of Delhi Police and Modi government has reached its zenith,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.

In another case of manhandling by the Delhi Police, two women including Rajya Sabha MP Jebi Mather were seen lying on the road while the cops try to grab them. While posting the video, former national secretary of NSUI, Sumittar Bhullar, accused the “Police of Prime Minister Narendra Modi” of hooliganism. 

Earlier in the day, Senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot was detained outside the All India Congress Committee (AICC) as he was trying to head inside. While condemning the Police for forcing its way to the party headquarters, Pilot alleged that the PM Modi-led Centre has decided that no Opposition leader can do anything. 

On Thursday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi reached the Enforcement Directorate (ED) headquarters at around 11.30 am on the third day of interrogation in the money laundering case related to the National Herald newspaper.
