The Delhi Police have sent a notice to Hindu Sena leader Vishnu Gupta, who is facing charges in nine cases, asking him why he shouldn’t be “externed” from the National Capital Territory of Delhi for a period of two years.
Gupta had earlier been booked in connection with the vandalism at the Pakistan International Airlines’ office in Barakhamba Road and false complaints about beef being served at the Kerala House canteen .
The notice, dated February 11, was sent by Additional Commissioner of Police, south east, Vijay Kumar and was received by the Hindu Sena chief on February 18. According to the notice served by Delhi Police, there are “reasonable grounds for believing that Gupta was engaged in the commission of offence punishable under IPC, Delhi Police Act, Representation of People Act and the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act”.
“…Your movements and acts are causing alarm, danger, and harm to person and property in the NCT of Delhi. Your presence in Delhi or any part thereof is hazardous to community. The witnesses are not coming to depose against you in public due to fear and their persons and property,” stated the notice.
Gupta has been asked to “tender an explanation” and respond to the notice on February 25. “We have initiated the proceedings and we have asked him to come to the court at the DCP Office Complex in southeast District at 10 am and furnish a bond sum of
Rs 10,000,” said Kumar.
