A day after police registered an FIR against BJP leader Vijay Jolly,he was questioned at the Saket police station for close to four hours in connection with the ruckus outside Tehelkas former managing editor Shoma Chaudhurys house.
Jolly,who defaced Chaudhurys nameplate while leading a protest on Thursday,had been served a notice by the police under CrPC 160 to appear at the Saket police station on Friday by 10 am.
Officials said Jolly turned up at the station four hours late and was accompanied by his lawyers and party workers. During the questioning by the SHO,his supporters stood outside and refused to leave until he was released.
Sources said Jolly was given a questionnaire. He was asked questions about the source of the paint which he brought to the spot. We also asked him who had directed him to register a protest in that manner, said a police official.
Around 6 pm,Jolly was allowed to leave the police station. The police said he has been directed to come for a second round of questioning Saturday morning.
