ROHTAK: Professor Virender Singh, the aide of former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, on Thursday surrendered before the Rohtak District Court.

“I’m a law abiding citizen. I haven’t done anything wrong. The truth will come out soon,” Singh told ANI.

“Most of the truth has already come out as the court has observed that this is not a case of sedition,” he added.

The court had on Tuesday denied his anticipatory bail, saying that although, prima-facie, sedition case is not made against him but allegations are of serious nature and the case requires deep probe and his co-operation.

The Rohtak court had, on February 29, issued arrest warrants against Prof. Virender after he failed to join the probe even after he was granted two days time by the Special Investigating Team.

The FIR was registered on the complaint filed by Captain Pawan Anchal (retd.), a Bhiwani resident. Besides charges of sedition, offences of criminal conspiracy and damaging public property were also included in the FIR.

Virender has been accused of talking to a Khap leader in order to allegedly incite violence in the Jat agitation that took place last month.
