After different political leaders raised question over Delhi Police for detaining them and alleged that it is acting against them on government’s instructions, Delhi Police hit back to political parties.

In a media interaction a senior Police official said, “Leaders from across parties were requested to not gather near gate because of hospital services getting hampered due to the crowd, But when nobody paid heed to our direction to vacate the area, we detained people at different locations.

Clarifying Police’s stand he said, ” Family (Grewal’s kin) is cooperating with us in the due process, and all leaders who were detained have been released.

A written complaint was submitted to us saying that crowd be removed from here so as to maintain medical services.” “Leaders from across parties were requested to not gather near gate because of hospital services getting hampered due to the crowd. But when nobody paid heed to our direction to vacate the area, we detained people at different locations,” he said.

Later, Delhi’s Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia again came out heavily on Police and questioned, “What is happening? I am meeting the family of the ex-serviceman and you detain me? This is an undeclared emergency.” Citing the misery of deceased jawan’s family he said, “What worse could be than arresting the son of an ex-serviceman just because they sought help from a political party?”

Earlier in the day, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal were detained by Delhi Police in order to maintain ‘peace’.
