Faridabad, October 30

The police have filed a case under Sections 341, 34, 506 of the IPC and SC/ST Act against Jaiveer Khatana, municipal councillor from Ward 3 here, and some unidentified persons in connection with alleged misbehaviour, wrongful restraint and criminal intimidation.

The case has been filed in response to a complaint lodged by Ashok Rawal, a Congress activist here. He has alleged that the accused who was accompanied by several other persons not only stopped the vehicle of Kumar Selja, HPCC chief, and other Congress leaders but also hurled caste abuses while she had come to condole the death of Nikita, a college student, here on Thursday evening.

According to the complaint, besides gross misbehaviour and physical assault on the vehicle of the HPCC chief, the accused also indulged in criminal intimidation at the spot at around 5.30 pm.

Condemning the incident, Neeraj Sharma, Congress MLA from NIT Assembly segment here, demanded immediate arrest of all the accused and adequate security for the HPCC president. He alleged that the police had remained silent and that Congress workers had come to Selja's aid.

The police have launched a probe into the matter, said a police official.

Meanwhile, Mool Chand Tomar, father of the victim, in a message released through a video has appealed to politicians visiting his house not to indulge in politics.
