New Delhi: BJP's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi on Tuesday alleged that the owner of office of her Delhi Assembly constituency of Krishna Nagar has received threat against his life.

Bedi, on microblogging website Twitter, added that the owner has been told to “get us to vacate the office”.

On Monday, a group of around 150 lawyers vandalised the office of Bedi in Krishna Nagar.

According to police, the incident took place around 4.30 pm, when the lawyers - protesting the announcement of Bedi as the Bharatiya Janata Party's chief ministerial candidate for Delhi - marched towards her office raising slogans against her and the party.

Due to the commotion, around 25 workers inside Bedi's office came out and a heated argument ensued between the two groups that led to a clash.

Three BJP workers - Harihar, Kapil and Manoj, all in their early 30s - were injured and later hospitalised, police said.

The lawyers then entered Bedi's office and broke some furniture, a party leader said.

Police said the lawyers were protesting against Bedi ever since she was named the chief ministerial candidate, because in 1988 when she was the Delhi Police deputy commissioner, a group of protesting lawyers were caned on her orders.

Bedi visited the injured workers in hospital and said their statements have been recorded.

BJP's Delhi unit president Satish Upadhyay "strongly" condemned the attack and accused "some activists" of the Aam Aadmi Party of being behind the attack.
