Chandigarh: Haryana Police have handed over BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, who was arrested by the Punjab Police from his residence in the national capital on Friday morning, to Delhi Police.

Earlier, vehicles carrying the BJP leader from Delhi to Mohali got held up near Khanpur Kolian village in Kurukshetra district of Haryana. They were taken to the Thanesar Sadar police station.

The Kurukshetra Superintendent of Police said the vehicles were stopped for verification following an input from Delhi Police. The Haryana Police had registered a case of kidnapping.

Earlier in the morning, Punjab Police arrested Bagga from his residence in Delhi. More than 50 Punjab Police personnel reportedly reached his residence to arrest him.

An FIR has been registered against Bagga and some other unidentified persons under sections 153-A, 505, 505(2) and 506 of the IPC at the Cyber Crime police station in Mohali after a complaint filed by AAP Punjab spokesperson Dr Sunny Singh Ahluwalia.

In his complaint, the AAP leader said Bagga's comments amounted to criminal intimidation to cause violence and hurt to party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders.

Meanwhile, the BJP's Yuva Morcha has decided to hold protests in Punjab against the "illegal" arrest of Bagga. (UNI)
