BJP workers allegedly threatened the SHO of Majhola police station, Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, and the police has now lodged a case against 35 unnamed and 6 named persons. It was BJP youth-wing district President Abhishek Chaubey and his men who reportedly barged into the police station, misbehaved with the police personnel and threatened the SHO, while someone in the background can be heard chanting “Bharat Mata ki Jay”.
The video of the incident was posted by News24 channel on their Twitter account:

One person can be heard shouting at the SHO, “Aapki himmat kaise hui (How dare you)” while another man throws a file at the SHO’s desk asking, “How dare you shoot a video?” and then a lot of commotion follows. Then there is another video where the people are seen mediating with the police that there was no rioting and saying that we are not terrorists. He can be heard demanding that police should not lodge the case. “Case ko aapko vapis lena hoga (you will have to withdraw the case)”. “Hum dikhate hai aapko shaanti bhang kya hota hai (we will show you how disturbance is caused),” one of them said.
The police say that Chaubey and his men have been booked for creating disturbance after they allegedly had a dispute with the police for organising Durga Pooja event.
The incident took place last week and SP, Moradabad, Amit Anand tol TOI, “An FIR has been registered against 41 people- six named and 35 unidentified – under IPC sections 147 (rioting), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) among others.
