Remember Delhi Police refuting claims of them wanting permission to detain anti-CAA protesters when the protests began?
Don’t know why is @DelhiPolice lying on the letter regarding their request for converting Jangli Pahlwan Stadium in Kanjhawala as temporary prison for Anti CAA protestors ahead of #DelhiPolls.. @capt_ivane you can now pursue it with the letter attached.. https://t.co/1kEdRfuz9p pic.twitter.com/PTHQc5zAVI— Ankit Tyagi (@Ankit_Tyagi01) February 6, 2020
The letter, dated 29th January, 2020, was written by the Additional Commissioner of Police, Rohini district, SD Misra.
In the letter, all the claims made by the police force in January can reportedly be rubbished.
While refuting the charges, Delhi Police PRO, Anil Kumar Mittal, said:
No permission was sought for setting up any temporary jail. Kanjhawala falls in the area of Joint Commissioner North Zone and he has declined having any information about this.
He further claimed a request was made for land to house the extra police force that is deployed for election duty.
