New Delhi: The Home Ministry on Tuesday said it has no information on any group called the 'Tukde Tukde Gang'.
Replying to a written question in Lok Sabha, Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said the ministry has no information on whether the terminology 'Tukde Tukde Gang' is based on specific inputs provided by law enforcement agencies.
"No such information has been brought to the notice of the government by any law enforcement agency," he said.
The reply came in response to questions by Congress members Vincent H Pala and Jasbir Singh Gill.
The questions included whether an organisation called the 'Tukde Tukde Gang' has been identified and catalogued by the Home Ministry or any central/state law enforcement agency, whether the terminology 'Tukde Tukde Gang' is based on specific inputs and whether the ministry or intelligence agency has drawn up a list of alleged leaders and members of the 'Tukde Tukde Gang'.
"Tukde-Tukde" is a term coined by the right-wing parties to attack the opposition parties and those who support them.
"I want to say that it's time to punish the tukde-tukde gang led by the Congress. They are to be blame for the violence in the city. People in Delhi should punish them," Home Minister Amit Shah had said while addressing an event in Delhi on 16 December 2019.
