AAP leaders meet Punjab DGP
Chandigarh, July 4, 2016: The AAP national spokesperson and incharge of Punjab unit, Sanjay Sing along with a delegation of AAP leaders visited Punjab DGP on Monday. Singh took up the issue of Naresh Yadav, AAP legislator in Delhi, who has been booked by the Punjab police for his alleged involvement in sacrilege of Quran, the holy book of Islam, in Punjab’s Muslim dominated town of Malerkotla in Sangrur district recently. Naresh Yadav was also joined the delegation.
Yadav was named by the main accused Vijay Kumar, a Delhi-based businessman, who reportedly told police that he met the Delhi MLA on the morning of June 24, the day he left for Punjab to commit the crime.
Controversy over the desecration of the Quran erupted after the prayers on the third Friday of the holy month of Ramzan as news spread that torn pages of the holy book were found in a drain in front of a cemetery on Khanna Road.
