New Delhi: After Delhi Police claimed that Shaheen Bagh shooter, Kapil Gujjar, who was arrested, was a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) since early 2019, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal made an statement saying: If the accused is found to have links with AAP, he should get double punishment.
Addressing the media on Wednesday, Arvind Kajriwal said that if punishment for such crimes is 10 years of jail term, then Shaheen Bagh shooter should be given 20 years, if he is an AAP member.
The CM also denied the claims made by Delhi Police that the shooter who opened fire at the Shaheen Bagh anti-CAA protest site, is an Aam Aadmi Party member.
Meanwhile, Delhi police on Tuesday said that they have found photos of Gujjar with AAP leaders such as Sanjay Singh.
Gujjar arrived in Shaheen Bagh area on Saturday night and fired in the air twice before he was overpowered by people and police and taken into custody.
