Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti has accused a senior Delhi Police officer of not responding to him when he tried to reach out to him to seek help for two women who were allegedly “molested and assaulted” on Diwali.
However, police said it was a dispute between two families in South Delhi’s Green Park area that had resulted in cross FIRs including the charges of molestation by one of them.
Bharti tweeted saying that DCP South, Ishwar Singh, did not respond to his calls.
“On Diwali day 2 young women were assaulted n molested in Arjun Nagar but DCP (south) doesn’t have time to respond to MLA’s calls/SMSes…DCP(South) doesn’t respond 2 MLA’s SMS “Please call back, its urgent” n DP falls directly under LG with 0 accountability to AAP Govt.y? (sic)” the AAP MLA said in a series of tweets.
Singh could not be contacted over phone for his comments.
