The Gandhinagar Police on Tuesday produced as many as 64 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members, including 6 leaders, in a court and nine of them were remanded to police custody while some of them were refused bail.
At least 70 of them were arrested in connection with the scuffle with the police and BJP workers at the BJP headquarters, Shri Kamalam, on Monday.
The AAP has alleged that the police had started rounding up its members since Monday night and were kept in police custody “under house arrest.”
The AAP leaders, who have not filed any complaint so far, told journalists at the Gandhinagar court that they had no faith in the police since they “unleashed torture” on them and were “hand in glove with the BJP workers”.
They pointed out that as many as 18 various sections of the Indian Penal Code had been invoked on them and they would file their detailed complaints in the court and not the police station.
Surprisingly, the AAP leaders claimed that one Jayendra Abhvekar who started from Kubernagar in Ahmedabad as a witness for bail to Gujarat AAP president Gopal Italiya was detained by the police. They also said even the advocate who had prepared all the papers to get bail for Italiya was also detained by the police.
Not only this, even the drivers and attendants of the buses hired to bring the AAP members were detained and produced in the court.
