Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Sanjay Singh on Tuesday, 15 June, said his residence in the North Avenue high-security area in Delhi was vandalised with an attempt to ‘deface the nameplate’.

Two people were arrested in connection with the case, with the investigation underway. An FIR was registered under sections 188 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, as well as Section 3 of the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act, 2007, news agency ANI reported. 

Singh claimed that the attack was linked to the AAP’s stand against an alleged scam involving the Ram Temple Trust buying a piece of land for the temple in Ayodhya at an inflated price.

‘Will Continue to Raise My Voice Against Corruption’

“My residence is barely 100 metres away from the Rashtrapati Bhawan. There has been an attack on my residence. I want to make it clear to the BJP government and its goons that no matter how many times you attack me, I will continue to raise my voice against corruption committed in the name of Lord Ram,” Singh said.

“An attempt was made to deface the nameplate at the residence of Shri Sanjay Singh, MP... No physical injury has been caused to anyone. Further investigation is on,” the Delhi Police had tweeted after the incident.
