July 3, 2016 | By

Malerkotla: Bringing in yet another twist to the Malerkotla Quran beadbi case, the Punjab Police now maintains that the an Aam Aadmi Party MLA in Delhi had allegedly masterminded the beadbi incident.

According to media reports the Punjab police is set to question Naresh Yadav from Mehrauli South constituency in Delhi, for his alleged role in the incident.

The police claim to have “enough proof” to link AAP MLA with the three men arrested in the case: Vijay Kumar, Gaurav and Nand Kishore.

Earlier, it had come into light that the arrested persons were linked to Hindutva outfit called Vishav Hindu Parishad (VHP).

“While Vijay Kumar used to run an NGO in USA and later in Canada that had an anti-Muslim slant, the other two were affiliated to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP)”, notes The Tribune.

Sangrur SSP Prithpal Singh Thind said, “During their interrogation, Vijay Kumar and Gaurav said on June 24, a day before the sacrilege incident, they met the MLA at his residence in Delhi, where the conspiracy was given a final shape. We have also been able to establish through call records that Kumar and Yadav exchanged calls on June 18, 19 and 23.”

Naresh Yadav has rubbished the police claims. He reportedly told media persons that he was unaware if he had met any person called Vijay Kumar, and denied allegations of his involvement in the crime.

“Being a politician, many people come and meet me. I would have no knowledge if a person meeting me today goes and commits some heinous crime tomorrow. And I can confirm having met a person called Vijay Kumar only after I have a look at his photograph,” he said.

He claimed it to be a political conspiracy to diminish AAP’s poll prospects in the state. Naresh Yadav is the “Seh-Prabhari” to Sanjay Singh, in charge of AAP’s Punjab affairs.
