Cong workers attacked AAP supporters, damage vehicles: Kumar Vishwas

March 14, 2014 23:41 IST

Aam Admi Party leader Kumar Vishwas on Friday claimed that armed Congress workers attacked his supporters and damaged vehicles in Sindurva village under the Kamrauli police station area in Amethi on Friday evening.

"As I was proceeding to address an election meeting there, 20 to 25 Congress workers armed with lathis used foul language, clashed and attacked AAP workers including me," he told PTI. Vishwas is the AAP candidate from Amethi against Congress Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi.

"Around 15 AAP workers were injured and they are holding two workers hostage," Vishwas said, alleging that they also indulged in teasing two to three female workers. "At least three vehicles, including one used by me, were damaged in brick-batting," he said. Superintendent of Police Hiralal said the concerned police station has been informed and force has been sent.

“Action would be taken against those found involved in it," the SP added.
