New Delhi: A Delhi Police Assistant Sub -Inspector has been suspended until the completion of inquiry in the case of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Manoj Tiwari’s house being ransacked.
Earlier on Tuesday, five more people were arrested for allegedly breaking into the Tiwari’s house. Altogether seven people have been arrested in the case till now.
The Delhi Police has booked them on the charges of culpable homicide.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP, Crime) Madhur Verma assured that all the angles related to the case would be investigated.
“As per the statement given by Manoj Tiwari’s staff Ashok Pathak, an FIR under Section 452, 323, 506 and 34 has been lodged. Upon investigation, accused Jaykumar and his brother Jaswant, who live in North Avenue, have been apprehended and will be arrested soon,” Verma told the media.
Verma further informed that the scuffle started with a verbal argument but escalated to a violent level due to which even the staffs of the BJP MLA were not spared.
Tiwari’s house was ransacked on the wee hours of Monday, a development that apparently stemmed out of road rage.
Tiwari was not present in his house when the incident took place at around 1 am.
CCTV footage shows Tiwari’s staffers getting into a scuffle with some men a little ahead of the politician’s residence, following which the assaulters can be seen charging into the gates of his house, along with others. (ANI)
