All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday alleged his residence in the national capital was attacked by unidentified miscreants, claiming that this was the fourth such incident since 2014, according to the news agency PTI.

Owaisi, who was on a visit to Rajasthan, said that stones were pelted at his Delhi residence. The incident took place at around 5.30 pm on Sunday. Following the incident, the AIMIM chief has submitted a complaint to Delhi Police.

"I reached my residence at 11:30 pm. Upon returning I found the glass of the windows broken and stones/rocks lying around. My domestic help informed that a group of miscreants threw stones at around at the residence around 5:30 pm," Owaisi alleged.

"This is the fourth time such an attack has taken place. The area surrounding my house has enough CCTV cameras, and the same may be accessed, and the culprits should be apprehended immediately. It is conceived that such acts of vandalism are happening in such a high-security zone," he further added. 

"Immediate action must be taken, and the culprits should be arrested at the earliest," he said. 

Owaisi said that those who are doing this are confident enough because they know their party is in power. 

“If Junaid and Naseer could be burnt alive then who am I? Those who are doing this have a lot of confidence as they know their party is in power. This is the 4th time my house was attacked...they can be the people believing in Nathuram Godse's ideology,” he told media persons. 

He added, “Police will give the exact information about the attack on my house. Central Govt and Delhi CP will have to look into this matter. I do not have CCTV cameras installed, there are several cameras on the streets that need to be checked.”

Meanwhile, Delhi Police responded to Owaisi's complaint and said that legal action is being taken in the incident. 

“Owiasi wasn't present at his residence when the alleged incident happened. One brick/stone was found in the parking area at the back entrance. An investigation has started," Delhi Police said.
