AAP MLA Sarita Singh allegedly misbehaved with an on-duty police officer in Delhi according to a video that has surfaced. A complaint has been filed on grounds of misconduct but Singh has denied the allegations.

According to police reports, the incident took place at around 7: 15 pm last Sunday in a parking area when Singh’s driver while reversing his car allegedly hit a police officer’s motorbike.

The officer, Om Pal, had been appointed as the security in-charge at a marriage function in the Rohtash Nagar area. According to reports, Pal had to jump off to save himself from getting injured.

The MLA intervened after an argument flared up between Pal and the driver. The latter allegedly started abusing Pal, who is an Assistant Sub-Inspector, and his team.

An FIR has been filed under Sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 279 (rash driving) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC and investigation is underway

Singh has asserted that Pal started using abusive language, and the issue escalated because of that. She also added that the cops are targetting her because she is a member of AAP Party which has always been targetted by the Delhi Police.

I will go to Bhajanpura Police station and lodge a complaint. I shall also meet senior officials and take up the matter with them. The video was partially shown on media. The part where the cop abused me was intentionally edited.
