Attack on Chaudhury's House: Jolly Questioned for Hours

Senior Delhi BJP leader Vijay Jolly was today questioned for several hours by Delhi Police in connection with the defacing of the nameplate outside the residence of Tehelka's ex-Managing Editor Shoma Chaudhury.

Jolly has to appear before Saket police station again tomorrow in order to get his statement recorded in the matter.

Police registered a case of rioting, wrongful restrain and defacement against Jolly and his supporters and a notice under section 160 of CrPC was issued to him to appear at the police station today morning.

The BJP leader, however, arrived at the station around four hours late and was accompanied by his lawyers.

"Jolly arrived at Saket police station around 2 pm along with advocates and was questioned by the Station House Officer till 6 pm. Jolly was given a questionnaire related to the incident," a senior police officer said.

He was also questioned about the source of the paint which he had allegedly brought to the spot.

"We also asked him who had directed him to register a protest in that manner and we have asked him to appear again on Saturday to record his statement," the officer added.

On whether Jolly would be arrested, another senior officer said, "We have registered a case against him and if needed, he will be arrested."
