A chemist from South Delhi has been arrested for allegedly threatening to blow up the Ravi Dass Camp in RK Puram, which was home to those accused of torturing and raping a 23-year-old woman.
Rajesh Powar (37) was caught from the Camp after he distributed handouts to the residents ordering them to vacate the camp else he would blow it up.
Police later recovered two crude bombs from his possession. During questioning, Powar told police that he intended to blow up the colony to draw government's attention to ensure the most severe punishment for rape accused.
Powar lived in Freedom Fighters Colony, Neb Sarai, and worked as a chemist.
Following the incident, the residents of the Camp shouted slogans and demanded police protection. A police picket has been set up at the Camp.
Meanwhile, police also registered a case of cheating and submitting forged documents against Dinesh Yadav, owner of the chartered bus in which the woman was gangraped.
Police said the papers of the bus were verified after the incident and they were found to be forged. Yadav had provided false information while registering his bus with the State Transport Department's office in Burari, police said.
DCP (North) Sindhu Pillai said: "He (Yadav) had filed a false affidavit claiming to be residing at the (Burari) address. As per enquiry from the Transport department, a case has been registered."
