Ayodhya Land Deal: AAP’s Leader Claims House ”Attacked” By BJP Supporters

India: Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh on Tuesday claimed his house was “attacked” by BJP supporters for highlighting the alleged corruption in the purchase of a piece of land in Ayodhya by the Ram temple trust.

According to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sources, the nameplate of Sanjay Singh’s house in North Avenue locality, a high-security area, was blackened by two people who also tried to forcibly enter the premises.

A senior police officer said the two have been detained and no one was injured in the incident.

Taking to Twitter, Sanjay Singh said, “My house has been attacked. Listen carefully BJP supporters, no matter how much hooliganism you indulge in, I will not allow the funds collected for constructing the Ram temple to be stolen even if I am killed.”

Reacting, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor in a tweet called it a “scripted drama”.

Praveen Shankar Kapoor said, “Yesterday, he tried to malign Ram Mandir construction, today he claimed an attack on the house, everything is a scripted drama”.

At a press conference on Sunday, Sanjay Singh had alleged that Champat Rai, the general secretary of Shriram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, purchased 1.208 hectares of land worth ₹ 2 crore in Ayodhya’s Bag Bjaisi village for ₹ 18.5 crore with the help of trust member Anil Mishra.

The land, he claimed, was purchased from people who had brought it for ₹ 2 crore just minutes before.

The senior AAP leader also sought a probe into the matter by the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Deepak Yadav said two people have been detained in connection with the incident.
