JPNN| New Delhi| Apr 23, 2015| The Delhi Police has accused the Aam Aadmi Party and its leaders of having instigated Rajasthan farmer Gajender Singh into committing suicide and putting all sorts of obstacles in their efforts to rescue him. It has also dismissed the magisterial probe ordered by the Delhi Government saying that it has no jurisdiction in the matter. Under attack from AAP that the police did nothing to rescue the 41-year-old farmer during its rally at Jantar Mantar Wednesday, the police said Thursday in its FIR that neither the workers nor the leader cooperated with it. "This is totally an incident where AAP workers and leaders instigated the man to commit suicide and they also did not pay heed to requests made by police," says the FIR. The FIR was registered under Section 306 (Abetement of suicide), 186 (Obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions) and 34 (common intention) of IPC in Parliament Street Police Station. The two-page FIR, filed on the complaint of S S Yadav, an inspector who was on duty at the rally venue, read "Around 12:50 PM, when AAP leaders were delivering speeches, he saw some people looking upward toward a tree and clapping where a man was waving a broom. I informed the control room on wireless and asked AAP workers and others not to instigate him and help us to bring him down." But neither the AAP leaders on stage nor the workers on the ground cooperated, the FIR alleged. Yadav further said that he called up senior officials and again requested AAP workers to help rescue Singh and also to make way for the rescue vehicle. They continued to say that police was against AAP and was not allowing the party to go ahead with the rally. PTI
