New Delhi: Delhi BJP leader Ashwini Upadhyay on Monday lodged a police complaint against CM Arvind Kejriwal over the latter’s tweets in connection with the shooting down of a tech company executive in Lucknow.

Mr Upadhyay, who is also a Supreme Court lawyer, sought registration of a case against Mr Kejriwal accusing him of “promoting enmity on grounds of religion” and “doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony”. The Tilak Marg police said the complaint was being looked into.

“We are seeking legal opinion on whether a case can be made out with regard to the complaint,” a senior police officer said. The AAP supremo had on Sunday hit out at the BJP over the killing of Vivek Tiwari, claiming “the BJP does not protect the interests of Hindus”.
