Naresh Balyan, legislator of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), was booked this Sunday on charges of brawling with a Residential Welfare Association (RWA) office-bearer, according to Delhi Police.
Following a cross-complaint, the RWA office-bearer was also booked.
According to Police reports, the incident took place around 2P.M. in Uttam Nagar locality, when Vice-President, M.B George, of K-2 Block RWA held a meeting with other RWA office-bearers regarding the arrangements for the upcoming Dusshera festival.
Balyan is a legislator from Uttam Nagar in west Delhi.
Not being invited to the meeting is what fueled Balyan’s anger, said Police, and along with his associate Mahendra Fauji, he indulged in a verbal outburst with George. This later turned into a scuffle, leading George to subsequently lodge a complaint with Uttam Nagar Police Station.
In Fauji’s cross-complaint, he recalled that he had called Balyan for the inauguration of a drain in the block, where George fought with the AAP leader over the said inauguration.
“We have registered a case of brawl on the basis of complaints from both sides. We have registered a case under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (wrongful restraint) and 451 (house-trespass in order to commit offence) on George’s complaint against Naresh Balyan.
“We have also registered a case against George on Fauji’s complaint at the Uttam Nagar police station,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar said.
“We have recorded their statements and are investigating. No one was injured in the clash,” Kumar added.
