Congress MP Krishna Tirath on Wednesday shot at by unknown assailants. She is reported to have escaped unhurt.

The Lok Sabha member from Karol Bagh constituency in Delhi was reportedly attacked by two youths on a motorcycle while she was on her way back home in her car.

"I am safe. The incident happened on Link Road in Karol Bagh. I did not see anybody firing at the car. But there is a hole on the side of the car, which was being driven by my husband," Tirath said.

Asked whether she suspected any one for the attack, Tirath said she has no enemy.

"I have been in politics for the last 25 years. All are my friends."

However, police have not recovered any bullet from the incident site nor made any arrest. Police sources also do not rule out the possibility of car being hit by a stone.
