New Delhi: Hindu Sena activists vandalized the residence of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Delhi Police said they have arrested five members of Hindu Sena for vandalizing 24, Ashoka Road residence of Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi.

Owaisi took to Twitter to condemn the vandalism at his Delhi residence. He described the alleged vandals as 'radicalized goons'.

"My Delhi residence was vandalized today by radicalized goons. Their cowardice is well known & as usual, they came in a mob, not alone. They also chose a time when I was not home. They were armed with axes and sticks, they pelted stones at my house, my nameplate was destroyed," he tweeted.

He said it was the third time that his house was attacked.

Owaisi said that the Election Commission office was beside his house, the Parliament Street Police Station across the road, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence, eight minutes away. "If an MP's house is not safe, then what message is @AmitShah sending," he tweeted.

The accused had staged a protest outside Owaisi's bungalow around 4 pm after which they broke the nameplate outside the gate, tube light bulbs, tiles, pots, and windows. Deputy Commissioner of Police, New Delhi Deepak Yadav said all five accused have been detained. They are from North East Delhi's Mandoli area.

The accused told the police that they were angered by Owaisi's comments against Hinduism. Police said that they have recorded the statement of the person who was inside the house when the incident occurred.

On the basis of his statement, police said they are filing an FIR against all five. Police, however, refused to disclose the names of the arrested, saying it is a serious matter. Police said disclosing the names can have serious repercussions.

Hyderabad MP said that 13 persons attacked his house, out of which five have been detained. He also said that the house caretaker for 40 years, Raju, who later approached the police with a complaint, was assaulted and his grandchildren are now living in fear.
