Delhi BJP leader Ravinder Gupta on Monday entered his house and lodged a complaint against those who made death threats. An FIR has been registered and action will be taken against the accused, police said.
Gupta, who was the mayor of North Delhi in 2015, said in a complaint to the police that three people entered his house and threatened to withdraw his police complaint against a property dealer. Gupta posted a video of the FIR and the fight on Twitter.
“They threatened to withdraw the complaint and said they would kill me and my family. They surrounded me and tried to enter my house. Then one of them told his partner to bring weapons from their car and say, ‘I will finish.’ I called the police.” Gupta said in an FIR registered at the Desh Bant Gupta Road police station.
Police arrived at the scene and stopped the protest. The three men who broke into Gupta’s house were identified as Bindu, Suresh and Mohit, who live in Sonipat in Haryana. Police said they have been detained and will be charged with domestic violence, criminal intimidation and criminal conspiracy.
