The National Commission for Scheduled Castes Thursday served a notice to Delhi Police for allegedly delaying registration of FIR in the incident where Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee president Ashok Tanwar was injured following a clash between his supporters and those of former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

The Commission has sought a reply from the police by October 18. Tanwar had alleged that while he and other Congress workers received injuries, police delayed registration of an FIR.

Tanwar also held a meeting with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, apprising him of the clash that took place. The clash had taken place on October 6 as members of Haryana unit of the Congress were waiting to welcome Gandhi at Delhi. Gandhi was returning after completing his Kisan Yatra.

Tanwar has alleged that supporters of Hooda had attacked him, causing head and spinal injuries.
