"Since there were women volunteers who were detained, I went to the police station so that they could be released. At around 10.30 PM while I was talking to the media outside Rajinder Nagar station, a Delhi police bus tried to run over me but one volunteer pushed me aside," Pandey said as per a PTI report.
Pandey said that he has filed a written complaint with Rajinder Nagar police. "Hopefully they will file an FIR in the case.
The incident occurred a day after when Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal met Police Commissioner BS Bassi to discuss the law-and-order situation in the city in the wake of a 19-year-old girl's murder after she repelled eve-teasing attack.
Kejriwal-led Delhi government has already been at loggerheads with the Delhi Police and after its two MLAs were arrested, the AAP has accused the police of acting under political pressure.
