Embarrassment for Delhi police as court acquits AAP MLA and admonishes cops for filing false cases


In a huge embarrassment for Delhi police, a lower court in Delhi on Saturday acquitted Aam Aadmi Party MLA, Akhilesh Pati Tripathi while admonishing the police for filing trumped up charges against the legislator.

The Rohini court also warned Delhi police not to file false cases against MLAs in future.

Delhi police on 26 November had arrested Tripathi, in a two-year-old rioting case.
Tripathi, MLA from Model Town, was sent to Tihar jail for a day before being released on bail a day later.
Speaking to jantakareporter.comTripathy said that today’s court order should serve a lesson to Delhi police for future. He said he will request the Union Homes Minister Rajnath Singh to reign in Delhi Police and stop them from carrying out politics of vendetta in future.
He said, “Court ne aaj mujhe baizzat bari kar diya aur Delhi police ko phatkaar lagyi(The court acquiteed me with all charges with all respect and admonished Delhi Police). The court also questioned police why it woke a year after the alleged incident to file chargesheet only after I had become an MLA.”
Tripathy said that the malicious action by Delhi police had only enhanced his stature before ordinary public.
“We don’t fear anyone because we stand for honest politics and nothing will deter us from marching ahead with our mission,” Tripathi ahead.
The AAP government in Delhi has always accused the Delhi police of carrying out a politics of vendetta against its elected representatives in the capital. Delhi police reports to the BJP led central government. The BJP had suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of AAP in this year’s assembly elections in February.
Saturday’s acquittal has prompted the twitter users, mostly supporters of AAP, to launch fresh attack against Delhi police.

Renowned music composer, Vishal Dadlani asked the MLA to sue Delhi Police;

The media too came under attack for ignoring this story even though Tripathi’s arrest had dominated almost every news channel’s news agenda. The channels in particular had wasted no time in given blow by blow coverage to his arrest.

Dadlani expressed his outrage on Indian media’s decision to completely ignore Saturday’s development.

    We know the truth, We see the truth, But We believe the lies ……


    As our Motherland is the oldest and richest in cultural heritage the level of corruption AND DIVISIVE POLITICS became intolerable for Her. That’s why ALMIGHTY have created AAP which will ultimately nail down divisive politics and the politics backed by money and muscle power of the crony mafias and capitalists. That’s why, despite of heinous efforts to disrupt communal harmony in Trilok Puri, Bawana, vandalising Churches and so on, Delhi refused to become a Muzaffarnagar of UP only because of AAP-FACTOR………….



    2) Life is neither a bed of roses nor a bed of thorns,
    Life is a battlefield,
    where Sincerity is your sword
    and Honesty is your shield…………

    Ride upon HIS chariot, be UNBEATABLE …………..

    Delhi police is known to be one of the best in the country. They had to file this case as per the diktats of their political masters. Here is one more evidence that all investigating agencies should be liberated from the hands of the dirty politicians and must be answerable to a constitutional authority. The educated people must stand up and demand for liberating all investigating agencies from the clutches of the politicians and be put under the control of a constitutional authority that is answerable to the Supreme court. Only then will there be justice. If we had this system the real culprits of the 1984 riots and the 2002 pogrom would have been cooling their heels in the prisons where they belong.

      It will never happen! The politicians will never give up the power to instigate the police to arrest someone they don’t like or pressurizing the cops to release someone they know or willing to pay handsomely.

      Having the police in their control is like having a super weapon in their hand.

  • Nitish

    Everyone knows the truth… Its just we cant do anything against the culprits. Infact all we can only do is VOte for AAP.
    We know who is behind all this doings and specially aware of the good works currently Delhi people has seen. Kejriwal Sir – We are with you. Keep the good work continue.

    We are eagerly waiting for Punjab elections. From my family, all 15 votes are with you..
