Asaduddin Owaisi’s Delhi residence vandalised, five arrested


AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi’s official residence in New Delhi was allegedly targeted by the members of a right-wing group on Tuesday. The parliamentarian took to Twitter on the issue and blamed “radicalised goons” for the attack.

What Asaduddin Owaisi said

In a series of tweets, the Hyderabad MP said, “My Delhi residence was vandalised today by radicalised goons. Their cowardice is well known & as usual they came in a mob, not alone. They also chose a time when I was not home. They were armed with axes and sticks, they pelted stones at my house, my nameplate was destroyed.

“Raju, the caretaker of the house for the last 40 years was assaulted. The mob shouted communal slogans and threatened to kill me. Raju’s grandkids are living in fear now. Raju has filed a complaint with police. Hope action will be taken.”

“There were at least 13 people, 6 have been detained. This is the third time that my residence has been attacked. Last time it was vandalised @rajnathsingh was not only the Home Minister but also my neighbour.”

“Election Commission HQ is right next door to my house, Parliament Street police station is right across my house. The Prime Minister’s residence is 8 minutes away. If an MP’s house is not safe, then what message is @AmitShah sending?”

“@PMOIndia preaches to the world how we must fight radicalisation, please tell who radicalised these goons? If these thugs think that this is going to scare me, they don’t know Majlis and what we are made of. We’ll never stop our fight for justice”

Delhi Police arrests 5 people

Following the attack, Delhi Police arrested five members of the Hindu Sena for allegedly vandalising the MP’s house. Deputy commissioner of police Deepak Yadav said that the police received information regarding the incident at 5 pm and rushed to the spot. Five people were arrested for their alleged involvement in the incident since then.

A senior police officer said a case has been registered against the accused under sections 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees) and 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code, and section 3 of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act at the Parliament Street police station.
