The police on Saturday registered a case against a School Management Committee (SMC) coordinator under the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act for allegedly putting up posters in support of jailed Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia at a Delhi government school.

According to the FIR filed at the Shastri Park police station, SMC coordinator Ghazala, in connivance with Geeta Rani, the principal of Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya in Shastri Park, asked the girl students to arrange desks at the school gate and put up a huge poster that read “I love Manish Sisodia”.

The action comes after a complaint by Bharatiya Janata Party MP Manoj Tiwari to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) on Friday. He had alleged that children were “used for singing and dancing in political campaigns of the Aam Aadmi Party, and their images are being used to garner public sympathy”. The same day, NCPCR chairperson Priyank Kanoongo said a notice seeking action was issued to Delhi Police.
