Sri Ram Sene activists attack SP office in Delhi

Activists of Sri Ram Sena (SRS) ransacked the central office of Samajwadi Party, 'in retaliation' to the alleged defamatory comments made against slain Delhi Police Inspector M C Sharma by SP leadership.

Taking responsibility for the attack, the outfit's

national general secretary Binay Kumar Singh told PTI that he and his supporters entered the premises of the SP office at Copernicus Lane this evening. They damaged some vehicles parked inside the premises as well as some furniture and hoardings, he said.

"Those who have raised doubts over Inspector Sharma's sacrifice should not be spared. The Government has failed to take any action against such people, therefore we decided to teach them a lesson," Singh said referring to SP leader Amar Singh, who had raised doubts about Sharma's role in the Jamia Nagar encounter.

He said their next target would be Amar Singh and 'advised' him not to approaching the police as he himself has raised doubts about its integrity.

An employee at the party office confirmed 'trouble outside the office' when contacted over telephone.

The government has been mulling over a decision to ban the outfit, which has been accused of reportedly attacking churches in Karnataka and was also involved in vandalising an exhibition of M F Hussain's paintings held here recently.
