“We will record the statements of both the parties and those of the eyewitnesses. Further action will be taken accordingly,” said Sanjay Beniwal, Joint Commissioner of Police (eastern range).
Reacting to the incident, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal said the FIR registered against Koli was “wrong”, even as he went on to declare that Koli should not have celebrated the way he did — by busting crackers and dancing. “He (Koli) will be warned,” Kejriwal said.
On Monday morning, AAP supporters had held a victory march along with Koli to thank the voters of the constituency. Eyewitnesses claimed that several people from the procession had rushed inside Dhingan’s Tahirpur residence. They, however, denied having spotted Koli in the crowd.
