Talking to ANI, AAP Councillor Prem Chauhan said, "He (Prakash Jarwal) went to police station earlier in the day and met Station House Officer (SHO). What was the need of detaining him in a hurried manner in the night?"
He questioned why police did not arrest the chief secretary as the same complaint was also lodged against him.
"We lodged the same complaint against the chief secretary. Has he been arrested? Is he above the democracy? He also comes under the ambit of law. When action was not taken on our complaint then why such swift action has been taken on his complaint," the AAP councillor questioned.
He said that when Jarwal along with a colleague was going to attend a marriage, the police stopped his vehicle near Khanpur traffic signal and detained him at around 11 p.m. on Tuesday.
"He (Jarwal) is not a criminal. When we are cooperating then the police could have waited till next morning. Instead of detaining him, he could have been summoned for questioning. Jarwal's colleague informed us about the incident," the AAP councillor said.
He demanded the police to reveal where they have kept the MLA.
"We are running from one police station to another police station, but could not meet our MLA. He is not a terrorist. Police should at least tell us where they have kept Jarwal," Chauhan said.
He also informed that Jarwal lodged complaint against the chief secretary with the SC/ST commission as well as with the Sangam Vihar police station. The MLA, in his compliant, alleged that the chief secretary passed casteist comments against him during the meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence.
The Chief Secretary said that he was attacked in the presence of the Chief Minister after being summoned for discussions on Aadhaar -related problems. (ANI)
