Claiming a threat to his life from youth Congress activists, who staged a protest outside his house, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Tuesday requested Delhi Police to register a case in this regard.
"I would like to request you to please register a case against the miscreants and to take adequate measures to ensure me and my family's safety," Singh said in a letter to Police Commissioner KK Paul.
The Samajwadi Party leader, in the eye of a controversy over alleged tapping of his phones, visited the police headquarters to meet Paul but left a copy of his complaint.
In the complaint, he demanded action against those miscreants "who were armed with sticks and forcibly tried to enter his 27, Lodhi Estate residence to cause bodily harm to myself, my wife and two minor daughters."
Police said some Youth Congress leaders had demonstrated outside Amar Singh's official residence shouting slogans against him.
The activists were detained and later let off after a warning, police said.
Singh had been claiming that his phone was being tapped allegedly at the behest of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
