Delhi BJP MLA walks free after police bail in assault case

New Delhi, Feb 18 (IANS) Delhi BJP legislator O.P. Sharma was on Thursday granted bail by Delhi Police after his formal arrest in an assault case.

After he was granted bail at the Tilak Marg police station here, where he was summoned for questioning over his alleged involvement in the assault on a CPI member Amieeque Jamei at Patiala House court complex here on Monday, he said he was a “victim of media trial”.

The assault on several Jawaharlal Nehru University students and media persons by a group of lawyers and others occurred in the court complex on Monday before the court appearance of JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar in a sedition case.

“It is shameful if people who stop others from screaming ‘Pakistan zindabad’ have to go through all this. I am being tried by the media. Judgements were passed while they (media) sat in studios,” Sharma told reporters after the grant of bail.

“I was questioned for eight hours by the Delhi Police regarding the case,” the BJP leader added.

The police issued summons to Sharma and three lawyers in connection with Monday’s assault.
