New Delhi, Feb. 18 (ANI): Delhi police arrested controversial BJP legislator O.P. Sharma, on Thursday in connection with an assault case on Monday, but the former was later released on bail.
“Till now, a media trail was being conducted on me and judges sitting in the studios were pronouncing judgement. My investigation started at 11 a.m. and the questioning went on for eight hours by police,” Sharma told the media.
“This is truly embarrassing; one takes action against traitors and gets punished,” he added.
The police had on Wednesday issued summons to him as well as to three lawyers in connection with the assault on journalists, students and teachers of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) at the Patiala House court complex.
Delhi Police has been criticised for not taking action against those involved in the assault on Monday and Wednesday.
Sharma was not named in two FIRs registered by Delhi Police in connection with the attack on JNU students and journalists outside the courts complex.
Police had on Tuesday registered two FIRs against unknown persons even though cameras clearly showed Sharma and his supporters thrashing CPI activist Ameeque Jamai outside the court premises.
The BJP MLA had claimed to be a victim and alleged that he had suffered a head injury in the attack and had hit out in self-defence. (ANI)
