The Election Commission has taken action against the Delhi Police officer who linked a young man who was firing in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh with the Aam Aadmi Party.
Crime Branch's DCP Rajesh Dev had claimed that the young man Kapil Bainsla, who shot in Shaheen Bagh, is associated with the Aam Aadmi Party.
On Wednesday, the Election Commission has issued a warning notice to Rajesh Dev and a copy of it has been added to his CR dossier.
The Election Commission has said that Rajesh Dev should not be assigned any work related to Delhi elections.
The Election Commission has also asked to submit a compliance report in this regard by 6 pm on Thursday.
DCP Rajesh Dev had claimed in a press conference on Tuesday that Kapil Bainsla admitted during interrogation that he was associated with the Aam Aadmi Party.
In a statement, Rajesh Dev had said, "Kapil has admitted that he and his father joined the Aam Aadmi Party in January-February 2019."
The Election Commission has stated in its notice that elections have been negatively impacted by DCP Dev's statement about a political party at a time when the investigation is still underway.
The Election Commission has said that there was no need for what the DCP has done and this will also have an impact on holding free and fair elections.
Politics in Delhi had intensified after Kapil Bainsla was added to the Aam Aadmi Party.
Opposition party BJP had accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of spreading chaos in Delhi.
At the same time, when reporters were asked about this by Kejriwal, he had said that Kapil Bainsla should be punished strictly and if it proves that he is somehow connected with the Aam Aadmi Party then he should be punished twice.
Kejriwal said that BJP is doing politics of provocation.
This young man named Kapil Bainsla had shot at the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act in Shaheen Bagh, Delhi on Saturday. During this time he said that only Hindus will do well in India.
Kapil Bainsla was taken into custody by the Delhi Police from there. A country pistol was also recovered from him.
Shaheen Bagh of Delhi has become a big issue in the assembly elections and the election campaign of the ruling BJP at the center is focused on this.
BJP leaders have called from the platform to shoot the traitors of the country.
Prior to this incident, a minor youth was also shot at the students from outside Katti by demonstrating outside Jamia University.
A student was injured in this incident. The attacker has been sent to a child improvement home.
