Acting on a complaint made by Union Minister Smriti Irani, the Delhi police has today, detained four college students for allegedly following her. Irani has filed the complaint in the Chanakyapuri police station alleging that, at around 5:30 pm, four youths followed her when she was in her car and tried to overtake. Reportedly, all the four detained students are from the Ram Lal College. While the police are yet to register a FIR on the incident, the four accused are being questioned at the Chanakyapuri police station. The police will have also conducted medical tests on the accused to ensure whether the students were inebriated while driving.
Speaking to the media, an official of the Delhi Police has confirmed that four people tried to cross the vehicle of the Union Minister when she was crossing Moti Bagh flyover. “Their medical examination has confirmed the presence of alcohol in their blood. They were returning from a friend’s birthday party in south Delhi and were roaming in the area for fun,” he said.
Interesting, two years back on April 3, the Union Minister had caught a spy camera in the changing room of a store. The then Union Minister of Human Resource Development, had caught the spy camera in one of the ‘Fab India’ store in Goa, following which the police had registered a FIR and arrested four accused in connection with the incident. After statements from Irani, the Calangute police had sealed the store and also seized all the hard drives with recordings from the spy camera. The accused had been booked under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
