Contempt notice to BJP leader Manoj Tiwari, for breaking lock of sealed house

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday sought the presence of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Manoj Tiwari before it on September 25 for allegedly breaking the lock of a house sealed by the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) in Gokulpur.

Terming the action of Tiwari “unfortunate”, a bench of Justice Madan B Lokur, Justice Abdul S Nazeer and Justice Deepak Gupta directed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP to appear before it on September 25.

The Delhi Police had registered a case against Tiwari after EDMC filed a complaint, citing news reports that the northeast Delhi MP Sunday tampered with the seal of a dairy that was shut down for running illegally.

Based on the EDMC complaint Tiwari has been booked under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 461 and 465 of the Delhi Municipal Corporation (DMC) Act.
