Delhi Police on Friday registered a case against the husband of AAP MLA Bandana Kumari for allegedly threatening a school principal while demanding admission for a student.
The MLA’s husband, Sajjan Kumar, and her personal assistant, Sanjay Mishra, on Wednesday allegedly threatened the principal of Sarvodaya Vidyalaya in Shalimar Bagh, Ranjeet Singh, if he did not admit the student.
A case has been registered against Kumar and Mishra at Shalimar Bagh police station under Sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC.
After the incident, Singh on Wednesday wrote to the Education department stating that Kumar had called and questioned him on the delay in the student’s admission.
“I told him to come and meet me. I have the audio of the same. He then came to the school and started talking loudly… He did not listen to my point of view and threatened to get me terminated,” Singh said.
Confirming that a heated exchange had taken place between the two, Kumar said he approached the school after the student had asked for his wife’s reference letter for getting the admission. “The principal said he cannot admit a student based on an MLA’s letter. I went to the school to speak to him but he behaved very rudely,” Kumar said.
