AAP MLA Akhilesh Tripathi convicted in 2013 case


New Delhi, Apr 9 (ILNS) A Delhi Court today convicted AAP lawmaker Akhilesh Pati Tripathi under the offences of unlawful assembly and obstructing public servant from discharging his duties in a 2013 case, in which Tripathi, along with around 300 people, protested against the police for not taking serious action in a murder case.

Special CBI Judge Geetanjali Goyal also convicted another accused Geeta in this case, while acquitting 19 other accused named in the FIR. The court posted the matter for hearing arguments on sentence on April 27.

According to the prosecution, Tripathi, a lawmaker from the Model Town constituency, and others, allegedly instigated a mob of around 300 people against the Delhi Police, claiming that it had not taken serious action to arrest the accused in a murder case. It was alleged that the protesters had placed the victim’s body on the road to block traffic.

Charges were framed against the 21 accused under Sections 147 (rioting), 186 (obstructing public servant in carrying out their duty), 353 (assault or use of criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 333 (causing hurt to public servant) read with 149 (unlawful assembly) of Indian Penal Code and under the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984.

This is the second AAP MLA who has been convicted by a court this year. AAP leader Somnath Bharti was also convicted for his role in leading a mob, which broke the boundary wall at AIIMS, leading to injuries to some staffers. ILNS/ANB/SNG/RJ
