Gurdeep Deepa was arrested on the basis of a complaint by constable Pardip Kumar who alleged that he was assaulted and his uniform was torn by the BJP leader inside Satnampura
police station on Monday night.

A case was registered against Deepa under Sections 506 (criminal intimidation), 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 353 (assault or  criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) of IPC on the constable's complaint.

However, Deepa denied the allegations, saying he was being framed in the case. Three cops, including an inspector, were suspended for dereliction of duty on Tuesday on a complaint by Deepa as they along with an accused were allegedly caught drinking liquor inside a police station.

"While SHO Inspector Joginderpal, two head constables Harbhajan Singh and Sarwan Singh were on Tuesday suspended on Deepa's complaint, Deepa was arrested on constable Pardip Kumar's complaint," he said.
