New Delhi/IBNS: Five men, who claim to belong to a group called Hindu Sena, were on Tuesday arrested by the police for vandalising the official residence of Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi in Delhi.

The incident took place in the national capital's Ashoka Road on Tuesday evening.

Commenting about the incident, Owaisi said "the mob" raised communal slogans and threatened to kill him.

In a series of tweets, Owaisi said: "My Delhi residence was vandalised today by radicalised goons. Their cowardice is well known & as usual they came in a mob, not alone. They also chose a time when I was not home. They were armed with axes and sticks, they pelted stones at my house, my nameplate was destroyed."

He said that this is the third time that his residence has been attacked. Last time it was vandalised when Rajnath Singh was the Union Home Minister  as well his neighbour, the Hyderabad MP added.

In an attack on the Centre, Owaisi further tweeted: "Election Commission HQ is right next door to my house, Parliament Street police station is right across my house. The Prime Minister’s residence is 8 minutes away. If an MP’s house is not safe, then what message is @AmitShah sending?"

A case has been registered and five people were arrested for their alleged involvement in the incident, the police told the media.
