The AAP on Friday claimed that successive bail orders to its legislators in the cases filed against them “conclusively prove” that the Delhi police was “deliberately framing” them, and also alleged that the BJP government at the Centre was “vindictive”.

Armed with a number of bail orders and reading out a few of them, AAP spokesperson Ashutosh wondered whether “Modi’s police” would now apologise to the legislators.

 

The police “abused” Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan’s wife during his arrest, he claimed.

He said the bail, and in some cases the acquittal, orders of the MLAs — who included Khan, Somnath Bharti, Surender Singh, Bhavna Gaur, Dinesh Mohaniya, Akhilesh Pati Tripathi and Manoj Kumar — were not “highlighted” enough by the media.

“The way Amanatullah Khan was arrested from his bedroom at 7 am in the morning and his wife was misbehaved with by the police is shameful. His wife was abused and heckled. Police did not observe basic courtesy.

“But the court rapped the police saying that the FIR against Mr Khan had no allegation that it was he who abused and threatened the complainant. Nothing could be recovered from him during his two-day-long police custody,” Ashutosh told reporters.

 

Eleven AAP MLAs were arrested by Delhi police and their Punjab counterpart in various cases since the party came to power in Delhi for a second time in February last year.

The party has stated that its MLAs were being arrested under a “conspiracy”, and that a writ petition will be filed in the Delhi high court with a compilation of “false” cases slapped against them.
