Kerala House beef row: Man quizzed for ‘false complaint’


Delhi Police on Wednesday detained a man for filing a “false complaint” that beef was being served in New Delhi’s Kerala House canteen. The complaint triggered a huge controversy.

Hindu Sena chief Vishnu Gupta was detained for filing the false complaint, police said. “Vishnu Gupta has been detained today. He was taken to the Parliament Street Police station for questioning,” a senior police official said.

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other political parties termed it an attack on the federal structure. In its defence, Delhi Police said they visited Kerala House only to “prevent any tension or untoward incident”.

Chandy on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to instruct Home Minister Rajnath Singh to take action against the police officers who “raided” the Kerala House.

A probe later revealed that carb beef (buffalo meat), and not beef, was on the menu, police said. And after an uproar by Chandy and his counterparts in Delhi and West Bengal, buffalo meat has returned to the menu.
