AAP office attack:Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to get Z-category security?

New Delhi/Ghaziabad, Jan 9: A day after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) head office was vandalised by some miscreants in Kaushambhi, Ghaziabad, the Uttar Pradesh government is likely to decide on providing Z-category security to the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday.

According to a news report, "UP government officials do not want to take any risk on the security measures of Kejriwal after activists of right-wing group Hindu Raksha Dal yesterday attacked and vandalised the AAP headquarters to protest against party leader Prashant Bhushan's remarks over referendum in Kashmir".

"If any untoward incident happens, the UP Police would get the blame," an official said on the condition of anonymity.

"We would also try to convince Kejriwal to accept the security," he further said.

After the attack, Ghaziabad senior superintendent of UP police has been reportedly directed to deploy security personnel near Delhi CM's residence.

On Wednesday, 13 people including leader of the Hindu Raksha Dal, Bhupendra Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhry, were arrested from Sahibabad area in connection with the attack on AAP office.

The attackers came in six cars and attacked the AAP headquarters by throwing bricks, stones and flower pots, besides smashing windows.

Earlier, UP police had deployed security cover at the AAP office but they had to remove it as Kejriwal turned down it.

But, now the UP police is reviewing the security situation for Kejriwal and the AAP office. Besides, security has also been tightened at the Delhi secretariat.

"Attack on AAP office has added to the stress," another senior police official said.

45-year-old Kejriwal who formed government in Delhi on December 25, has refused for any kind of security arrangements for himself or for his office. Kejriwal who claims that he is an "aam aadmi" also said that " the God is his biggest security."

Meanwhile, RSS sources told a news agency that they have nothing to do with the attack on AAP office.
