Aurangabad: The Aam Aadmi Party office in Aurangabad in Maharashtra was vandalised today by unknown attackers who smashed a TV, an AC and some windows.

According to the Press Trust of India, AAP City President Harpreet Singh and rural region chief Jayaji Suryavanshi said a group of men forcefully entered the party office and asked them to stop their ongoing membership drive.

The incident less than a week after an attack on the party's headquarters in Ghaziabad near Delhi, less than a km from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's home. A group of 40-50 people, carrying flags of 'Hindu Raksha Dal', entered the AAP office, threw stones and broke windows with lathis. They also allegedly targeted workers and misbehaved with women.

A case was registered and one person was arrested a day after the attack.

One of the attackers had said they were protesting AAP leader Prashant Bhushan's remarks suggesting a referendum in Kashmir on whether the people want the army for internal security. Mr Bhushan had earlier withdrawn those remarks after much criticism.
