A small group of unidentified people on Sunday barged into the house of Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy in Nizammuddin East and went on rampaging his garden. Swamy alleged it to be handiwork of “rowdy Congress persons”.
The Delhi Police registered a case of criminal trespass and creating mischief.
The police said no major damage was done and some flower pots and lanterns in the garden were damaged. Swamy is in Texas and the incident was reported by his granddaughter. “Rowdy Congress persons break open into my Nizamuddin compound destruct my garden. Police have arrived. Please inform police (sic),” Swamy tweeted on Sunday evening. He further added: “At that time only my young grand daughter was (at) home. (She) had (the) presence of mind to phone the police.”
As the police is trying to ascertain the identity of the persons, Swamy said: “A plain clothes police officer was witness and has given evidence for FIR.”
Swamy is facing ire or his remarks suggesting that the voting rights of a minority community should be revoked in a newspaper article. The National Commission for Minorities has also issued a notice to Swamy in connection with the article.
