New Delhi: AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi has made allegations that shots were fired at his car while he was coming back to Delhi following an election campaign in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.
However, no one was injured, only his car tyres were punctured, he said. “We are all safe. Alhamdu’lilah,” the Muslim leader wrote.
The incident happened at a toll plaza near the national capital, in western Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur. The shooters left their weapons and fled, the Hyderabad MP said.
“I was leaving for Delhi after a poll event in Kithaur, Meerut. Three to four rounds of bullets were fired upon my vehicle by two people near Chhajarsi toll plaza; there were a total of 3-4 people,” Owaisi said.
“Tyres of my vehicle (in pic) punctured, I left on another vehicle,” Owaisi wrote.
कुछ देर पहले छिजारसी टोल गेट पर मेरी गाड़ी पर गोलियाँ चलाई गयी। 4 राउंड फ़ायर हुए। 3-4 लोग थे, सब के सब भाग गए और हथियार वहीं छोड़ गए। मेरी गाड़ी पंक्चर हो गयी, लेकिन मैं दूसरी गाड़ी में बैठ कर वहाँ से निकल गया। हम सब महफ़ूज़ हैं। अलहमदु’लिलाह। pic.twitter.com/Q55qJbYRih
