Senior Congress leader Sushil Kumar Shinde, who was once a Police Sub-Inspector is now reminiscing his old days as he examines the case of an assault, that of Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar.
Tanwar was assaulted on the day Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi wrapped up his kisan yatra in New Delhi. The allegation has come on former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda and his supporters. And from the Congress’ side, Shinde is looking into the probe of the case
Tanwar and his men have submitted proofs like photographs and video clips on the two-day hearing at AICC headquarter on October 17-18. These proofs show the security personnel of Hooda and his nephews wielding sticks.
While the Hooda side has called the injuries an exaggeration, they also alleged that it was Tanwar to provoked them by preventing them from putting up hoardings and scaling barricades.
Shinde told The Sunday Express that he met nearly 350 people during the hearing, and would soon submit his report. “I have to take the statements of two more people who are out of the country. After taking their statements, I will file a report at the earliest,” he said.
This has gone on to the extent that Tanwar was even planning to stage protest outside police headquarters but decided against it after intervention from top party leaders.
