New Delhi: Lawyer Vikram Chauhan, who was twice caught on camera – first while beating up the journalists at Patiala House Court and later while boasting about hitting JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar – is expected to surrender before the Delhi Police soon.
Chauhan, who joined the investigation at Tilak Marg police station, is expected to surrender later, states India Today report.
In a sting operation by India Today, Chauhan was caught admitting that he had beaten up the scribes and some students outside Patiala House Court over JNU's alleged 'anti-national' protests. He also revealed that the Delhi Police personnels took no action against him when he took the law in his own hand.
While speaking to ANI, Chauhan said, "There is absolutely no pressure on me. I am common man and I do not represent anyone. The media is trying to portray me as a goon. I am an Indian and if praising Mother India and saying 'Vande Matram' makes me a goon then so be it. Yes there are allegations against me but I'm sure I will be vindicated.”
The Supreme Court has agreed to consider a plea seeking contempt action against three lawyers allegedly caught on camera bragging and boasting that they had beaten up JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar in police lock-up for three hours at the Patiala House Court complex here.
Yashpal Singh, another lawyer, who was caught on camera attacking teachers, students and journalists at the court hearing in the JNU case in Delhi last week, was arrested and released by the police on bail on Tuesday.
