- Alleges cops prevented him from appearing in court as witness against accused
- Also claims was thrashed by miscreants; threatened by cops
BHOPAL: Vyapam whistleblower Ashish Chaturvedi has filed a complaint with the inspector general of police, Gwalior zone that cops prevented him to appear in the court to give witness against an accused in the Vyapam case.
In the complaint he said on February 26, he was distributing wedding cards of her sister. At the City Centre area four miscreants came on a four-wheeler and threatened him to give up the case filed against Vyapam accused Deepak Yadav and Vishal Yadav.
They also tried to kidnap him and snatch the gun from the security guard appointed by the government for his safety. All this was recorded in camera.
Chaturvedi alleged when the police came to know that the attackers belonged to the BJP and RSS, they did not submit the video recording and statements to the police.
He also alleged on February 27, the police took him from home to present him in court, to give witness against another accused Rahul Yadav, but instead of going to court they wandered the whole day and prevented him to appear in court. Not only this, the cops, he said, also beat him up and threatened him, asking not to give statement against the Vyapam accused, including the BJP, RSS men and policemen involved in the case.
Ashish demanded from IG Anil Kumar Singh to conduct a free and fair inquiry on his complaint, taking proper action in the matter.
