NEW DELHI: An FIR has been registered against an AAP MLA on a complaint by a realtor for alleged rioting and causing hurt at one of his properties in Vivek Vihar a day before the Delhi Assembly elections.

According to the FIR, filed by complainant Manish Ghai, a local builder, AAP's Shahdara MLA Ram Niwas Goel and his supporters had allegedly 'raided' one of his houses in Vivek Vihar on the night of February 6.

The MLA had allegedly raided the house of Ghai accusing him of stashing liquor, blankets and other stuff for distribution ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections.

The party leaders, however, refuted these claims saying that they had gone to the house with a police team that comprised of the local Station House Officer and Assistant Commissioner of Police among others after making a PCR call in this regard.

"As per the complainant, some labourers had stayed at a house that was owned by him. He received a call from one of them at about 9.30 pm on February 6 about Goel and his associates forcibly entering the building and damaging the property," said a police official quoting the complaint.

Ghai also alleged that the group broke almirah drawers, kitchen items, window panes and mirrors in the house. When the labourers tried to resist their entry, they were allegedly physically assaulted.

"We have registered a case of rioting, trespassing, causing mischief and voluntarily casing hurt and further investigations are on," the official added.
