Chandigarh: Punjab Police have registered an FIR against a Delhi BJP leader for allegedly sharing on his Twitter handle a “doctored video clip” of Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal.
This is the third FIR against a BJP leader since the AAP formed government on March 16.
The FIR was registered against Delhi BJP’s media cell head Naveen Kumar Jindal in Mohali, near here.
