Court sends Hindu Sena members to custody for vandalising Owaisi's official residence in Delhi


New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday sent a member of Hindu Sena, arrested for allegedly vandalising the official residence of AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi at Ashoka Road.

Metropolitan Magistrate Amardeep Kaur sent the accused - Lalit - to police custody till tomorrow for custodial interrogation and the other four arrested members - Sachin, Shivam and two persons named Vijay - of the outfit to 14-day judicial custody.

While seeking Lalan's custody, police said he was required for the purpose of recovery of weapon of offence, an axe, and to unearth the overall conspiracy, reports PTI.

A case was 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 under the relevant section of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act at the Parliament Street police station

The incident happened at around 4 p.m. on Tuesday when members of Hindu Sena were staging a protest outside Owaisi's house, located adjacent to the Election Commission headquarters on the Ashoka Road.

The protesters shattered a lamp atop the main gate and the nameplate of the parliamentarian. The white pieces of the lamp could be seen strewn across the road.

Reacting to the developments, Hindu Sena national President Vishnu Gupta told IANS that he was not aware of the incident and came to know about it through multiple media reports and other sources. He confirmed that some workers of his outfit went to protest there.

"Asaduddin Owaisi has been constantly making anti-Hindu statements and workers might have been feeling agitated due to this," Gupta said adding, however, one should not adopt unlawful ways to register their protest.

Owaisi, meanwhile, in a series of tweets came down heavily on the present dispensation.

"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," he posted on Twitter.

The AIMIM chief alleged the caretaker of his house was assaulted.

"The mob shouted communal slogans and threatened to kill me. Raju's (caretaker's) grandkids are living in fear now. Raju has filed a complaint with the police. Hope action will be taken," he wrote.

Owaisi said that this is the third incident when his residence, which lies in a high-security area, has been vandalised by 'miscreants'. Calling the people who attacked his house 'thugs', Owaisi said he won't stop his fight for justice and such incidents do not scare him.
