Almost two weeks after the Delhi Police registered a case against him for spreading enmity between communities, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Saturday threatened to move court against Delhi Police for not posting the FIR on its official website.


Terming the matter as contempt of the Delhi high court order, Swamy said he will move a petition either in the high court or in the Supreme Court on Monday.
Swamy said he had also written to Police chief BK Gupta and sought a copy of the FIR but has not been provided with it.

"The courts recognise that law of torts provides for a suit against misfeasance in performance of duty and therefore the police's failure to act as per the provisions of Articles 21 and 22 of the Constitution will invite a suit of damages against Delhi Police," he said.
