“Delhi Police Tore My Clothes”: MP Jothimani’s Shocking Testimony

Jothimani

New Delhi: Allegations have now surfaced amid Delhi Police’s reported violence at the Congress headquarters yesterday that the unit manhandled several women protestors including Lok Sabha MP Jothimani.

“The Delhi police brutally assaulted us yesterday. They tore my clothes, removed my shoes and carried me like a criminal,” the Tamil Nadu MP said.

Senior Party Official Shashi Tharoor took to Twitter in flaming the police unit.

“This is outrageous in any democracy. To deal with a woman protestor like this violates every Indian standard of decency, but to do it to a LokSabha MP is a new low. I condemn the conduct of the @DelhiPolice & demand accountability. Speaker @ombirlakota please act!” he tweeted.

In the now controversial video shared, Tamil Nadu Congress MP Jothimani reports that the Delhi police officials tore her clothes and manhandled several women congress members out of the protest site like criminals.

“There are 7-8 women in the bus including me. We have been repeatedly asking for water, but they refused. When we are trying to buy it from outside, they are telling sellers not to give water to us,” she added in the visual testimony.

The Delhi police unit and Congress party members have been in constant clash since Rahul Gandhi’s appearance at the Enforcement Directorate’s headquarters early this week.

The ED yesterday grilled Rahul for the third consecutive day regarding his connections to the money laundering case at the National Herald Newspaper.

Several congress party members have been detained or arrested by the unit early this week. Police personnel yesterday barged into the Congress headquarters and detained several party workers.

“@DelhiPolice behaving like the private militia of the @BJP4India by entering the HQ of the @INCIndia,” KP Chidambaram of the Congress Tweeted yesterday.
