A Delhi court on Tuesday directed the state police to file an action taken report (ATR) on a complaint seeking FIR against Shiv Sena MP Rajan Vichare in the alleged incident of force-feeding an IRCTC employee who was on fast during Ramzan at Maharashtra Sadan, as first reported by The Indian Express.
Metropolitan Magistrate Akash Jain has asked the police to file the ATR on September 10 on the complaint filed by social worker Kamran Siddiqui. The complainant in his plea had sought court’s direction to the police to lodge an FIR and take appropriate action.
The court asked the complainant the reasons for filing the complaint, for which the complainant replied to the court that they are ‘public spirited’ persons and have filed several PIL’s on various issues.
The counsel for the complainant also told the court that the alleged victim being a contractual employee with the IRCTC cannot file a complaint related to the incident.
