The police have booked three persons, including AAP district (urban) president Navdeep Jeeda, for allegedly manhandling and using foul language with senior officials of the Health Department. Notably, the accused, along with parents of children who were transfused with HIV-positive blood, had gone to meet the senior medical officer over the matter on Wednesday.

  • AAP district (urban) president Navdeep Jeeda among three had met an SMO over transfusion of HIV +ve blood
  • The police have booked them for "manhandling and using foul language"

Kotwali Police station SHO Davinder Singh said: "We have booked three persons, including AAP member Navdeep Jeeda, Suresh Pal, president of the Thalassemia Welfare Society, and Sukhchain Singh, a Shiv Sena member, for manhandling and misbehaving with the officials of government hospital on Wednesday."

"The accused were produced before the local court and will be remanded in police custody. We are awaiting their Covid-19 reports after which they will be sent to the jail. There will be no tolerance against people who create ruckus and try to jeopardise the working of a government hospital."

Meanwhile, AAP leader Navdeep Jeeda denied using foul language. He said he was conversing with health officials peacefully.

The move is politically-motivated and an attempt to suppress the voices seeking justice, he added.
