New Delhi, May 8: Delhi BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga on Sunday expressed his trust on judiciary system of the country after the Punjab and Haryana High Court stayed his arrest at a midnight hearing till May 10, saying that the law still works in the country.

He also thanked the Punjab and Haryana High Court for staying his arrest.

“I thank the Punjab and Haryana High Court who showed yesterday that law still works in this country,” said Bagga in a self-made video.

“He also thanked the Minority Commission as Minority Committee sent a notice to the Punjab government for not letting me wear my turban. In Sikhs, we can`t go out without a turban,” Bagga said in the video.

In a late night hearing, the Punjab and Haryana High Court directed the Punjab government to not take any coercive action against Tajinder Bagga until the next hearing on May 10.

Justice Anoop Chitkara passed the order while hearing a petition challenging the arrest warrant for Bagga issued by the Mohali court.

Notably, The Mohali district court on Saturday issued a non-bailable warrant against him in connection with a case registered against him on April 1 alleging inflammatory posts in the media and on Twitter.

Worth mentioning, in a dramatic way Punjab police team that arrested BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga from his Delhi residence on Friday morning was stopped en route to Mohali by Haryana cops after the Delhi police registered a kidnapping case based on a complaint by Mr Bagga’s father.

Haryana police surrounded the Punjab police vehicle carrying Bagga and escorted them off the highway to a police station in Kurukshetra and called the Delhi police as well.

Punjab police arrested the BJP leader on charges of making provocative statements, promoting religious enmity, and criminal intimidation.

 Bagga’s father Preet Pal has complained before Delhi police that around 10-15 cops entered their home, punched him and dragged his son out to take him to Punjab.
