Delhi Police claims – has received a request letter from Assam Police
According to news agency ANI, Delhi Police claimed that a request has been received from Assam Police to stop Pawan Khera from flying. On the other hand, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate said that all of us were going to Raipur by Indigo flight number 6E 204. Meanwhile, suddenly my colleague Pawan Kheda was asked to be taken off the flight. How arbitrary is this? Is there a rule of law? On what basis and on whose orders is this being done?
#UPDATE | CISF personnel deployed to handle the situation as per rules. Airport Police including DCP present at the spot to legally arrest Pawan Khera at the request of Assam Police. Assam Police officials also present at the airport. No impact on the movement of flights: Sources https://t.co/qvT0F1Rei3

Congress bid – this is dictatorial attitude
Congress tweeted, “This is dictatorial attitude. The dictator got the ED raids done before the convention and now he has resorted to such an act. The Congress leader was on his way to Raipur to attend the 85th plenary session of the party. Explain that on Monday, the ED raided premises linked to at least eight Congress leaders and office-bearers in Chhattisgarh in an alleged money laundering case.
Today senior Congress leaders were going from Delhi to Raipur by Indigo flight 6E-204.
Everyone had boarded the flight, at the same time our leader @Pawankhera Ji was asked to get off the flight.
This is dictatorial attitude.

Supriya Shrinate told the whole incident
Supriya Shrinet said that we all were flying to Raipur. When we were all set, Pawan Khera was asked to deplane. He was told that his luggage had been tampered with, but he did not have any. After landing, he was told that he had been offloaded from the aircraft and would be served a notice by the CISF.
While going from Delhi to Raipur to attend the Congress session, senior Congress leader Mr. Pawan Kheda was taken off the flight by the Assam Police. What was the emergency that the Assam Police came to Delhi and did this act? Earlier ED raids in Raipur and now such act shows BJP’s fury. This is condemnable.

Shrinet said that till the flight takeoff does not happen with all of us including Pawan Kheda, we will remain on the tarmac. We will not tolerate this dictatorship. At present, Congress leaders are sitting on the tarmac raising slogans against the government.
What did Congress leader Pawan Kheda say?
Congress leader Pawan Kheda said that I was told that they want to see my belongings. I said I have nothing but a handbag. When I got down from the plane, I was told that I cannot go and the DCP would come. I don’t know why I am being stopped.
