Ayodhya Land Deal Row: AAP’s Sanjay Singh Claims House “Attacked” By BJP Supporters

Sanjay Singh

“I will not allow the funds collected for constructing the Ram temple to be stolen even if I am killed,” Sanjay Singh tweeted.

Sanjay Singh, Rajya Sabha MP and AAP leader, claimed on Tuesday that 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.

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, as per Aam Aadmi Party.

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

Sanjay Singh, taking to Twitter, 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.”

Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor, reacting to the allegation 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”.

Sanjay Singh, at a press conference on Sunday, 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 AAP leader claimed that the land was purchased from people who had brought it for ₹ 2 crore just minutes before.

Mr Singh also sought a probe into the matter by the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate.

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

“An attempt was made to deface the nameplate at the residence of Sanjay Singh, MP. Two people have been detained in this regard. No physical injury has been caused to anyone. Further investigation is on,” he tweeted.
