Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday stepped up attack on the BJP leader and the NDMC vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar over the alleged murder of its assistant legal officer M M Khan.
The party has alleged that the Delhi Cantonment Board had accused Tanwar of “provoking religious sentiments and disturbing peace.”
The party, according to PTI, also sought to drag East Delhi BJP MP Mahesh Girri into the matter alleging that even he had written a letter to the LG in favour of the owner of ‘Hotel Connaught’, who was arrested on the charges of murdering Khan.
AAP’s Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey said, “It (the meeting by the board) has also asked the authorities to initiate all legal action against him as per relevant provisions of the Cantonments Act, 2006 and other applicable civil and criminal law.
“The Board was also of the view that Karan Singh Tanwar should restrict his activities to the NDMC only of which he is the vice-chairman.
“He may also may also be allowed to the meet the CEO in his office with prior appointment only and he shall be accompanied by one person only in his meeting with the CEO,” Pandey said, further reading out the order.”
Reading out the minutes of the meeting held on 13 May, Pandey said that a decision was taken “to inform the office of the Lt Governor about the inappropriate conduct of Tanwar by spreading false rumours and trying to provoke religious sentiments and disturbing peace for political gains and malicious and false propaganda against the Board.”
The murder of an honest NDMC officer, MM Khan, had taken a new twist after it emerged that the civic body’s vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar had written to LG Najeeb Jung asking for his transfer.
Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal had announced a cash compensation of Rs 1 crore for the family of the honest NDMC officer, SH Khan, who was murdered for not bowing to corrupt businessman allegedly enjoying blessings of a BJP leader.
