Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia’s residence was reportedly attacked by BJP supporters on Thursday.
The AAP claimed that BJP workers acted with the support of police personnel meant to ensure the safety and security of Sisodia and his family, ND TV reported.
Visuals from videos posted online by Sisodia and AAP leaders Atishi and Raghav Chadha showed dozens of men marching up to the Deputy Chief Minister’s residence and forcing their way past a handful of policemen, at least one of whom what had looked like an assault rifle.
The videos show the mob pushing the police aside – they seemed to surrender to the situation rather meekly – and hammer on the gates till they fly open.
As the mob makes its way inside the compound, some policemen follow them in and try to stop them from proceeding any further.
According to report, a case has been filed and six people have been arrested.
Sisodia, who was not home at the time, tweeted, “Today, in my absence, BJP goons broke into my house and tried to attack my wife and children. You (tagging Union Home Minister Amit Shah, to whom Delhi Police reports) may have lost the political battle but this is how you will respond?”
Taking cognizance of the alleged attack, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal on Thursday, noted that Sisodia’s wife and children were allegedly in the residence.
Instituting a probe into the incident, DCW has asked the Delhi police to furnish details of the incident, details of the officer on duty during the attack, a copy of FIR, and details of the accused, by December 14.
