Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan on Thursday filed a complaint against Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) youth wing leader Manish Chandela, who had brazenly claimed burning shanties of Rohingyas on social media in Delhi earlier this month.  

According top the report published in The Indian Express, Bhushan was also miffed with the Delhi Police for not taking any action against the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader.

Taking to micro-blogging website Twitter, Bhushan in a tweet said: “No action yet by Delhi Police to register a case and arrest him and no action by BJP to remove him from the party. State of rule of law under BJP,” mentioned the report.

“While Chandela has deleted his Twitter account following backlash and intense call for action from various groups, including All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), Bhushan, in his complaint, attached the screenshots of the tweet wherein Chandela claimed to have set the fire in the Rohingya camp,” stated the report.

On April 15, Chandela mentioned the report had tweeted from his account, “Yes, we did it and we do again #ROHINGYA QUIT INDIA.” In a tweet about the fire in Rohingya camp, he replied, “Well done by our heroes,” when asked about it he tweeted, ” Yes we burnt the houses of Rohingya terrorists.”

At least 50 shanties housing around 230 Rohingya refugees in southeast Delhi’s Sarita Vihar were gutted in a fire that broke out in the wee hours of April 15, the report said.
