[Watch] Sword-Wielding Men Attack Police Van Carrying Aftab Poonawala

New Delhi:  A police van carrying Aaftab Amin Poonawala, accused of the horrific murder of his girlfriend Shraddha Walkar in Delhi was attacked by a group of sword-wielding men this evening. The police managed to control the situation and Poonawala is safe, NDTV reported a source as saying. The police van was taking Poonawala back to jail from west Delhi’s Forensic Science Laboratory, after his second polygraph test.
The attack took place outside the FSL building. The two men who attacked the police van were carrying swords and claimed to be from ‘Hindu Sena,’ according to ANI. The right-wing group Hindu Sena has taken responsibility for the attack. A statement from Vishnu Gupta, the National President of the organisation, said the whole country is “watching how Aftab cut a Hindu girl into pieces”.


NDTV quoted sources as saying that the men had parked their car ahead of the police van, blocking it. Then five men emerged from the car, waving swords, and targeted the van. Sources said the police pulled out their weapons and fired in the air. No one was injured and two of the attackers have been taken into custody. They have claimed that their names were Nigam Gujjar and Kuldeep Thakur and they were residents of Gurugram. They also claimed that they were members of Hindu Sena — which the police are verifying

“I will move court seeking protection for Aaftab,” Poonawala’s lawyer told NDTV.
