New Delhi: The Delhi unit of the BJP on Monday condemned the attack on the residence of its president Manoj Tiwari and demanded a thorough probe into what it called a "planned" act.
The police have arrested two men, who along with their accomplices, had allegedly barged into the residence of Tiwari in Lutyen's Delhi and attacked his staff members, following a road accident during the wee hours.
The police should conduct a "thorough probe" in the matter and refrain from passing it off as a reaction to a dispute between Tiwari's driver and some person over trivial incident of vehicle collision, a Delhi BJP statement said.
"There is a big possibility that the initial car collision incident was a created alibi of the criminals involved in attack on Tiwari's residence," said the joint statement by Delhi BJP general secretaries Kuldeep Chahal, Rajesh Bhatia and Ravinder Gupta.
The CCTV footage from cameras installed at Tiwari's residence showed a group of men roaming inside carrying sticks and rods after his official car collided with another car near his residence in North Avenue area.
"The time of attack, injuries inflicted on 2 staffers of Tiwari apart from the abusive threats referred to Tiwari by the attackers shows it was a planned and police should reveal the identity of those involved in it," they said.
Tiwari, who is also the MP from North East Delhi, was not present at his residence at the time of incident around 1.15 AM.
"It is a big threat. Hardly 100 metres away from the police station, the attackers entered into the residence of an MP and thrashed his staff. Police should not spare anyone involved in it," Tiwari said.
