Kumar Vishwas, a close aide of India Against Corruption (IAC) activist Arvind Kejriwal, fears threat to his life after three youths allegedly barged into his Vasundhara house on Sunday.

 

The men in their three cars stood outside his residence for about half an hour. A complaint has been lodged at the Indirapuram Police Station. However, no FIR has been registered.

Indirapuram station house officer Gorakh Nath Yadav said, "We have started inquiries into the incident. A case will be lodged after the inquiry gets over."

In the complaint, Vishwas stated that three men barged into his house around 5.40pm while he was with his friends Sanjay Singh and Roop Chaudhary.  "I have also mentioned the registration numbers of the three cars. However, the police have not lodged an FIR. Besides, no police official has come to conduct a probe till now," he said.

"The three men pushed my assistant aside and said that they wanted to join IAC movement. I asked them to approach the Kaushambi office. However, they left after seeing two more people with me," said Vishwas.

 "After about half an hour when Singh and Chaudhary had left, some men in three cars came outside my house. They said that they wanted to meet me. I was interacting with the media at that time," he said.

 Vishwas added that two days ago three unidentified men had also barged into the house of his friend Manish Sisodia at Vasundhara. Sisodia is also an IAC member.

"His wife was alone in the house when the incident took place. The police have been informed, but no action has been taken yet," Vishwas said.
