Tejinder Pal Singh Bagga who had appealed to people on Facebook to protest against the police and the government at India Gate was taken into 3-day police custody and later released and kept under house arrest.

Tejinder told Dainik Jagran that on Monday he posted an advertisement of ‘Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena’ on Facebook appealing people to join ‘Hang the Rapist March’. He also distributed posters of the advertisement to some students of the Delhi University and appealed the youngsters to join the protest on December 29 at India Gate demanding setting up of fast track courts and increasing the number of women in the police force.

The moment he updated the post on Facebook, Tejinder received a call from the office of the ACP asking him to remove the post. However, he refused to do so after which the police on Thursday arrested him from his house and kept him in custody for three days at the Tilak Nagar police station.

He was released at midnight on Saturday and asked not to leave his house till further orders from the police. Two constables were also deputed at Bagga’s house to keep a watch on him.
