: Activists of a right-wing group on Wednesday attacked and vandalized the Aam Aadmi Party headquarters in Kaushambi with bricks and stones to protest against party leader Prashant Bhushan's remarks on referendum in Kashmir.
Around 40 activists broke flower pots kept outside the AAP's office and tore party posters. Some glass doors were also smashed in the attack.
Police said no one was injured in the attack. SSP Dharmendra Singh said, "We have identified some people. They were some residents of Ghaziabad and the numbers of their cars have been noted. Action against them will be initiated soon."
AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey said, "Some youths, gathered outside the party office and raised slogans against AAP. They also broke flower pots placed outside the party office".
Police have registered a case against unknown persons. The SSP said there was no security at the party office but policemen have now been deployed there and at Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence which is just a kilometre away.
He said they will again take up the issue of security with Kejriwal and try to convince him about that. Earlier, Kejriwal had turned down the security offered to him by Ghaziabad and Delhi Police.
Bhushan had recently said a referendum should be carried out in Kashmir to decide on deployment of the army to deal with security threats in the Valley.
However, the Aam Aadmi Party had distanced itself from his views.
AAP leader Kumar Vishwas blamed BJP for the incident, saying it is frustrated over Delhi assembly election results.
"Now they fear they will meet the same fate in Lok Sabha elections," he said.
