Delhi Police lodged two cases against Punjab Police in connection with the arrest.
The Punjab Police team taking the BJP spokesperson to Mohali near Chandigarh was stopped midway by Haryana Police after Delhi Police registered a kidnapping case on the complaint of Bagga's father.
Haryana Police took Bagga to a police station near Kurukshetra town where a team of Delhi Police arrived. Reacting to this, Congress MLA Pargat Singh took his Twitter account.
He wrote, “Today is a sad day in Punjab’s history as Punjab Police stands humiliated with a kidnapping case against it.
@BhagwantMann Ji, Punjab Police is not a mercenary outfit to settle @ArvindKejriwal’s political score. It is time to say no to all such illegal orders.”
Pargat Singh alleges Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for settling his political score using his power. Bagga came under fire from the AAP, which is ruling both Delhi and Punjab, for his tweet against Mr. Kejriwal over 'The Kashmir Files' movie.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders have defended the arrest, saying Punjab Police are acting in an unbiased way and the action was taken after the BJP spokesperson refused to cooperate with the investigation even after notices were sent five times.
AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said they have collected information about Bagga, who he claims uses "obscene, toxic and hateful language" on social media.
