Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta accused the Aam Aadmi Party of misusing the Punjab Police to arrest Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga. He said that the BJP workers will fight against the "Duryodhanpan" and "arrogance" of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Day after Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga was arrested by the Punjab Police, the saffron party has upped its ante against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The BJP workers will stage a protest outside the residence of the Delhi CM in the national capital, news agency ANI reported. The agency reported that the Delhi Police have made preparations to tackle any situation.

Earlier in the day, Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta launched an all out attack on the AAP-led Punjab government over Tajinder Bagga's arrest. This after the BJP leader had reached his Delhi home on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.

Today, Bagga has come back to his home. This is the victory of democracy and justice. His release broke Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's arrogance. He misused the Punjab police force to arrest Bagga," ANI quoted the Delhi BJP chief. 

After Tajinder Bagga was arrested by the Punjab Police from his Janakpuri residence in the capital on Friday, his father had approached the Delhi Police alleging his son was kidnapped by some armed persons. On his complaint, the Delhi Police registered a case of kidnapping. Bagga was accused of threatening Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Bagga alleged that the Punjab Police barged into his home and arrested him as if he was a terrorist. "I was not shown any warrant. When nearly eight people picked me up, I told them to let me tie my turban. They did not give me the chance to wear the turban and slippers. I was thrown into the vehicle. I was kidnapped by the Punjab police. The local police were also not informed. Nearly 50 policemen came as they do it with a terrorist," he said.
