SHO, City Kotwali police station, Surendra Singh Yadav said the complainant Rajesh Singhal called the police to tell them that Congress workers led by the city president had smeared a picture of the prime minister with black ink while staging a protest over demonetisation of 500 and Rs 1,000 notes at a city crossing Tuesday.
The police team rushed to the spot after receiving the complaint, but found nobody around, claimed the SHO. A case, however, was lodged on Singhal’s complaint against Touqeer Ahmed and 25-30 unidentified persons under IPC sections 147 (rioting) and 153-B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration).
“We have questioned some local Congress men, but they denied their involvement in the incident,” said the SHO.

When contacted, Rajesh Singhal said: “Congress city president Touqeer Ahmed and his associates are trying to disrupt law and order. A few days back, Touqir Ahmed and others had torched an effigy of the PM, but then we did not initiate any legal step against him. Now, when I came to know about them blackening the poster of the PM, I lodged the complaint.” “Local residents were protesting after employees of a bank refused to give money after 1 pm on Tuesday…We were present near the spot, but did not throw ink on the PM’s poster. Some BJP workers reached later and threw ink on the poster…BJP district president framed me in the FIR,” claimed Touqir Ahmed.
