NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Jarnail Singh was declared absconder by Delhi Police after his anticipatory bail plea was rejected on Tuesday.
The 42-year-old MLA from Tilak Nagar allegedly assaulted a South Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) engineer following which an FIR was registered last week.
“AAP MLA Jarnail Singh is absconding and hope that he would surrender,” Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi said.
According to the reports, Engineer Azhar Mustafa had gone to demolish an illegal construction at Krishna Park Extension area in West Delhi last week where he was prevented by Jarnail and his supporters.
“When I showed him the documents authorizing the demolition, the MLA tore up the papers and abused and physically assaulted me,” Mustafa claimed.
Later, the engineer filed the case against him at Tilak Nagar police station.
