New Delhi: Congress workers staged a protest at AICC headquarters at Akbar Road in New Delhi on Wednesday in support of Rahul Gandhi who is questioning by ED since three days in the money laundering case in the National Herald case.
Delhi Police personnel forcibly entered AICC headquarters at Akbar Road and thrashed party workers. However, the police denied their allegations. AICC posted a video in twitter which shows Delhi police entered AICC headquarter forcibly.
AICC spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said to the media persons that in an act of absolute goondaism perpetuated by the Delhi Police at the instance of the Modi government, the police today forcibly entered the AICC headquarters at Delhi and beat up party workers and leaders. This is patently criminal trespass.
Other senior leaders alleged that security personnel misbehaved with women parliamentarians and treated them like criminals. Jothimani Sennimalai, Tamil Nadu MP, released a video in which she appealed to the Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla to initiate action against the security personnel who mistreated women MPs. We were brutally beaten up and assaulted on Tuesday and today as well.
ओ तानाशाह…जब गुण्डई ही करनी है, तो उतरो लोकतंत्र की कुर्सी से और आओ जनता के सामने।
कांग्रेस के जिस दफ्तर में तुमने अपने पुलिसिया गुंडे भेजे हैं, उस दफ्तर ने दुनिया के सबसे बड़े साम्राज्य को धूल चटाई है…तुम्हारे अहंकार की तो हैसियत ही क्या है?
हम अहंकार तुम्हारा तोड़ेंगे। pic.twitter.com/rQexyK3srA

Our clothes were torn and shoes were removed. They are taking us to an unknown location. We needed water but the police didn’t allow us to purchase water. The security personnel bundled 7-8 women in the bus and treated them like criminals, she alleged. Detained party leaders and functionaries such as Sachin Pilot, Amrita Dhawan, Ajay Yadav, Vivek Bansal, Lalji Desai and Srinivas B V were taken to different police stations in Alipur, Narela, Vasant Kunj, Najafgarh, and Burari.
The Congress demanded that an FIR for criminal trespass be filed, erring police personnel suspended and disciplinary action initiated against them.
