At least 10 protestors, allegedly belonging to a national level party, entered into the compound of Janta Party chief Subramaniam Swamy's house and indulged in vandalism.

The incident took place around 5.30pm on Sunday and a few flowerpots, windowpanes and lanterns in the garden were damaged by the protestors. They also shouted slogans against Swamy's controversial column which was published in a Mumbai daily. In his article Swami had written against the voting rights given to a particular community.

Police have registered a case against unknown persons and looking into the matter. Police are also trying to ascertain the identity of the persons.

Swamy was not at home at the time of the incident which was reported to the police by his granddaughter. Police said 10 to 15 persons had gathered outside Swamy's residence when suddenly five of them barged into the compound.

Swamy himself tweeted about the incident. "Rowdy Congress persons break open into my Nizamuddin compound and destruct my garden. Police have arrived," he said on the microblogging site Twitter.
