Delhi violence: Times Now reporter heckled for questioning Kapil Mishra | India News

NEW DELHI: A Times Now reporter was heckled on Thursday when she tried to question BJP leader Kapil Mishra on violence in Delhi.
Kapil Mishra is in the dock for allegedly giving inflammatory speeches and inciting the crowd for violence.
In a speech on February 23, Kapil Mishra had threatened to take law into his hands if the police did not remove the road blockade by anti-CAA protesters.

The leader, who was keeping a low profile over the last two days as violence raged in Delhi, appeared today at Jantar Mantar for a “peace march”.
When the Times Now reporter, Parvina Purkayastha, confronted him with tough questions, his supporters tried to shield him.
According to Purkayastha, Kapil Mishra’s supporters began pulling her microphone and snatched it from her when she was reporting on the ground.

In the video footage, a few supporters are seen arguing with Purkayastha. One of the women is seen getting up and snatching the mic from her hands.
On Wednesday, the Delhi high court had directed the police to take “conscious decision” with respect to lodging of FIRs against alleged hate speeches by three BJP leaders including Kapil Mishra, in connection with the CAA violence. The other two leaders are Anurag Thakur and Parvesh Verma.
On Sunday, Mishra had issued an ultimatum to the Delhi Police to clear the streets of the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters.
“Giving a three-day ultimatum to Delhi Police to clear the roads in Jaffrabad and Chand Bagh of protesters. Don’t try to reason with us after this, because we won’t pay heed,” he had tweeted in Hindi.
He also attached a video with his tweet and wrote, “We will maintain peace until Donald Trump is in India. After that, we refuse to listen to even the police if the roads are not cleared … we will be forced to hit the streets.”
After stoking controversy for his remarks, Mishra on Monday appealed to the people of Delhi to maintain peace and stop the violence.
“I appeal to everyone to stop the violence, which will not lead to any solution. Whether it is the people who are supporting CAA or those who are against it, I appeal to everyone to maintain peace. Delhi’s brotherhood should remain intact,” Mishra had said.
