AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday claimed that some miscreants fired shots at his vehicle while he was on his way to Delhi after attending a poll event at Kithaur in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut. The incident is being probed by Hapur Police.
“A while ago, shots were fired at my car at Chhajarsi toll gate. Four rounds were fired. There were three-four people, all of them ran away leaving the weapons there. My car’s tyre got punctured. I got into another car and left. We are all safe,” he tweeted in Hindi.
Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM MP, in Delhi told to reporters, “I request the Election Commission to order an independent inquiry into this shooting incident. It is the responsibility of the UP govt and Modi govt to conduct an independent inquiry. I will also meet the Lok Sabha Speaker on this matter.”
In September last year, the Hyderabad MP’s official residence in New Delhi’s high-security Ashoka Road area was vandalised by a group of Hindu Sena men who damaged the door and windows, broke the nameplate, hurled an axe at the house and called the Parliamentarian a “jihadi”.
