Complaint against Delhi Dy CM for ‘inciting violence’

New Delhi, Feb 6 (IANS) A criminal complaint was filed against Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday for allegedly “inciting violence” in the national capital by blaming the Delhi Police for setting the public transport buses on fire during a violence which ensued near Jamia Millia Islamia in December last year.

The complaint was moved before a special MP/MLA court by advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava. The matter will come up for hearing on Friday.

Srivastava, in his complaint, quoted Sisodia’s tweet, which read, “BJP is setting fire in Delhi due to the fear of defeat in elections. AAP is against any kind of violence. See by yourself in this video, how fire is being set under the protection of the police.”

Sisodia’s tweet came after several buses were set afire when protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act turned violent on December 15 near Delhi’s Jamia Nagar.

The complainant accused Sisodia of depicting an “irresponsible and careless approach” by spreading false information to incite violence and promote disharmony.

“The tweets are being shared by many users, causing further doubts, confusion and unrest in the minds of people,” he claimed.

In lieu of this, the advocate requested the court to issue a direction to the Delhi police to register FIR against him under Sections 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 504 (intent to provoke breach of peace) and 505 (conducting public mischief) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and sections of the Information Technology (IT) Act.
