AMETHI: AAP candidate Kumar Vishwas today filed an application with police seeking registration of an FIR against Priyanka Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and some Congress workers in connection with an alleged threat by a party man.
The application filed at Gauriganj police station also names Rahul’s representative Dubey.
When asked about it, Vishwas said that on April 15 during Priyanka Gandhi’s tour, a video of Congress worker Vinod Mishra had been “leaked” in which he allegedly said “Vishwas Rahul bhaiya ke khilaf bol raha hai mai usko goli maar dunga” (Vishwas is talking against Rahul, I will shoot him).”
Vishwas alleged that instead of telling about it to the police, Priyanka called Mishra at the guest house. He said that he would also approach the Election Commission.
“If I am attacked in future, Congress will be responsible for it,” he said. Later, Vishwas sat on a dharna on the premises of Gauriganj police station demanding immediate registration of FIR.
Circle Officer Naveen Kumar Singh said the FIR would be registered after probing the matter.
“Vishwas did not receive any direct threat. He got a CD from somewhere. We are examining it…,” Singh added. -PTI
