NEW DELHI — The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President and MP, Asaduddin Owaisi, on Friday wrote a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla seeking the latter’s intervention in the case of vandalism at his official residence in Delhi.

Owaisi tells the speaker that his official residence in New Delhi (34, Ashoka Road) was vandalised by criminals belonging to a radical outfit called ‘Hindu Sena’ on September 21. “My caretaker staff, Mr. Raju Lal, was also assaulted by the criminals and they threatened to kill me,” he says in the letter which he has also tweeted.

“In addition to your intervention, I request that this matter be referred to the Committee of Privileges for a comprehensive investigation and appropriate recommendations on the matter,” said Owaisi.

“I urge that immediate action is taken in order to preserve the sanctity and majesty of the House. This is an attempt to intimidate the House, its officers and members and such an attempt must be treated as contempt of the House. I request your kind attention to ensure that my privileges as a Member of this House are also protected,” the AIMIM chief said.

The incident happened when members of Hindu Sena staged a protest outside Owaisi’s house which is located adjacent to the Election Commission headquarters on the Ashoka Road.

The protesters shattered a lamp atop the main gate and the nameplate of Owaisi. Later, police arrested five people.
