Man who led attack on AAP office surrenders

Ghaziabad, Jan 8 : Bhupendra Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhary, the national convenor of the Hindu Raksha Dal, accused of leading the mob attack on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) office in this Uttar Pradesh town, bordering the national capital, surrendered to police Wednesday, officials said.

Tomar is believed to have led the protests and vandalisation at the AAP office in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad Wednesday. He surrendered at the Indirapuram police station.

"We are against the statement made by Prashant Bhushan (on army deployment in the Kashmir Valley), and will not tolerate such statements," Tomar told IANS.

"I have committed no crime. The police came to my party office and I surrendered," he told reporters at the police station.

According to the police, complaints have been registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code against "unknown" assailants and the Hindu Raksha Dal.

"We have registered complaints under Sections 147 (punishment for rioting) and 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees) and also other Sections of IPC," a police official said.

About 30 people attacked the office of the AAP near the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Ghaziabad Wednesday, shattering window panes and vandalising furniture. Police have since decided to bring the office under security cover.
