Aam Admi Party Chief Party and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal raised question on the poor condition of law-and-order in the national Capital Delhi after an alleged attack on AAP Councillor Jitendra Kumar’s Delhi residence on Thursday evening.
Reacting to this alleged attack, Kejriwal tweeted “What is going on in Delhi?” on Friday morning. According to ANI “A group of armed men fired bullets at Kumar’s house and threatened to kill him before they left”.
AAP leader Jitendra Kumar from Delhi’s SangamVihar, who is the councillor of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), said, “There were 20-25 men. They not only fired bullets but also tried to break in. They threatened to kill me before leaving.
Kumar said he was present in his home with his relatives, who had come to attend his wedding scheduled on November 19, when the firing started at around 6.30pm.
Kumar said the attack was politically motivated and the attackers also damaged a car and three bikes parked outside his home. He added that he could identify three to four of the attackers.
“Multiple rounds fired on the house of Jitendra Kumar, AAP’s Councillor from SangamVihar, who hails from UP. It appears to be a politically motivated attack. If it is the case of elected representatives, one can only imagine the plight of a common man in this lawlessness,” AAP’s South Delhi Lok Sabha constituency in-charge Raghav Chadha said in a tweet.
