Anandpur Sahib, July 22

High drama was witnessed at the court complex here when the local police detained lawyer Dinesh Chadha, an AAP leader, and took him to Kiratpur Sahib police station. Chadha, however, was let off after nearly an hour.

Yesterday, AAP volunteer Gagandeep Singh, a resident of Bharatgarh, was arrested by the local police in an alleged case of extortion. Today, when the police took Gagandeep to the court, a large number of AAP volunteers reached there for the hearing of the case.

Rules violated

When the police took the accused to court, a large number of his supporters gathered there in violation of social distancing norms. I requested them to leave, but lawyer Dinesh Chadha opposed it, due to which I ordered the cops to take him to the police station. —Raminder Singh Kahlon, DSP

Chadha alleged that he went to the court as Gagandeep's counsel and he was talking to the mediapersons when the police reached the spot and started asking him and other volunteers to leave the place. When he objected, DSP Raminder Singh Kahlon ordered the cops to take him to the police station. Following this, he and AAP volunteers started raising anti-police slogans.

Meanwhile, DSP Kahlon said when police took the accused to court, a large number of his supporters gathered there in violation of social distancing norms. He requested them to leave but Chadha opposed it, due to which he had to order the cops to take him to the police station.

Following intervention by some, with a promise of good behavior in the future, Chadha was let off after some time, the DSP said. — TNS
