Aam Aadmi Party office attacked by Hindu Rakshak Sena

By on January 8, 2014

The Aam Aadmi Party office in Kaushambi was attacked with bricks and stones by a mob of around 50-60 people. The attackers were protesting against the Kashmir referendum remark of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan. The Hindu Rakshak Sena claimed responsibility for the attack. The attackers were carrying red flags and were shouting slogans against AAP leader Prashant Bhushan.

Few days ago, Prashant Bhushan called for a referendum in Kashmir Valley to decide on deployment of the Army to deal with security threats in the valley, while Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he didn’t agree with Prashant Bhushan that there needed to be a referendum in the Kashmir Valley.

The AAP Volunteers were inside the office when the attack took place. The volunteers had locked themselves in the building. The protest continued for some 20 minutes. Before leaving, the attackers damaged the outside property and threatened to attack AAP leaders in the future.

Police said no one was injured in the attack. “We have identified some people. There were some residents of Ghaziabad and the numbers of their cars have been noted. Action against them will be initiated soon,” SSP Dharmendra Singh said.
