AAP leader Kumar Vishwas moves High Court against lower court’s order


AAP leader Kumar Vishwas has moved Delhi HC against a lower court’s order of lodging an FIR against him on allegations of molestation.

In his petition, Vishwas has questioned the ” unprecedented over-enthusiasm” shown by the metropolitan magistrate in ordering an FIR in a bailable offence despite Delhi Police having said earlier that there was no evidence to support the allegations.

Delhi court last week had directed Delhi Police to lodge an FIR against Vishwas on a plea by an AAP volunteer who had alleged molestation.

The police, according to the order, had the liberty to arrest poet-politician if required during the investigation.

The court also said the complaint accused him of making “sexually coloured” remarks which required probe.

While pronouncing the order, the metropolitan magistrate Pankaj Sharma , also orally observed that as per the complaint, advances had been made towards the complainant.

Vishwas has denied charges calling them baseless.

Delhi Police, in its action report filed before the court had concluded that no case could be made against the AAP leader.
