Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has landed himself in a big controversy with his remarks on the killing of Apple executive Vivek Tiwari by a police official in Lucknow last week. BJP leader and Supreme Court lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay has filed a police complaint against the AAP supremo for his remarks in which he had said that Tiwari was killed even though he was a Hindu. The lawyer has demanded that an FIR be lodged against the CM under Sections 153A, 295A, 504 505 of the IPC and Section 67 of the IT Act. In his complaint to SHO, Tilak Marge Police station in the national capital, Upadhyay demanded that Kejriwal be booked for promoting enmity on grounds of religion, doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony, deliberate act to outrage religious feelings of 125 crore Hindus and defaming Hindus daughters and BJP leaders. Complaint lodged in Tilak Marg Police Station under Sections 153A, 295A, 504 505 of the IPC and Section 67 of of the IT Act against @ArvindKejriwal Ji.

He added that the CM has also defamed all office bearers of the BJP, including himself, which is an offence under Section 499 of the IPC. Kejriwal had in a series of tweets yesterday alleged that Vivek Tiwari was killed even though he was a Hindu when the BJP claims to be the real protector of Hindus. He was shot dead by a Uttar Pradesh Police constable in the wee hours on Saturday when he was returning home after attending an event with a colleague. The incident invited sharp criticism for the Yogi Adityanath government that has been claiming that law and order situation has improved post BJPs win in the 2017 Assembly polls.
