Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari's house ransacked, 4 arrested

May 01, 2017 11:08 IST

Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Tiwari’s house in Delhi was ransacked in the wee hours of Monday, a development that apparently stemmed out of road rage.

The incident took place around 1 am. However, Tiwari was not present at his house when the incident took place, but the accused attacked the staffers of the leaders present there.

CCTV footage shows Tiwari’s staffers getting into a scuffle with some men a little ahead of the politician’s residence, following which the assaulters can be seen charging into the gates of his house, along with others.

The police have arrested four people in connection with this incident till now.

“This is a very big threat. It was an attack on my life. Two of our staff members are injured. Their intentions were very dangerous. Looks like a big conspiracy, that too with police involvement. No one should be spared,” Tiwari said after the incident.

The accused ransacked the entire house and even the cars were vandalised.

“They were carrying rods. Even a policeman was visible in the CCTV footage, with these people. As per the information I have got, they were looking for me. I am not aware of the entire incident; we are looking the CCTV footage,” Tiwari said.

Earlier in February, Tiwari’s car was attacked by few unidentified men in Mumbai and was warned to stay away from campaigning for the civic polls in Mumbai.
