BJP on Sunday distanced itself from the manhandling of Aam Aadmi Party’s Prashant Bhushan in Indore by an activist of a fringe organisation led by a party leader.

“Our party never supports such type of acts… Taking law into our own hand is not a right thing and the BJP condemns such acts. The law will take its own course,” Madhya Pradesh BJP spokesman Vijendra Singh Sisodia told reporters.

An activist of a right-wing organisation ‘Devpath’, led by local BJP leader Mukesh Rajawat, had abused Bhushan during a press conference here on April 18 for his earlier controversial remarks on Kashmir. The activist also snatched off the AAP cap Bhushan was wearing.

On a complaint of AAP, police late last night arrested Rajwat and two others. They were later released them on bail.
