A day after Hindu Sena members vandalised the office of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), the Delhi Police arrested the outfit’s chief Vishnu Gupta for allegedly planning the attack.
“Gupta was arrested Friday afternoon after he was questioned at the Barakhamba police station. He has been booked under charges of criminal conspiracy,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Jatin Narwal.
On Thursday, five members of the Hindu Sena had ransacked the PIA office in Barakhamba Road at 3.15 pm. They had damaged computers and furniture.
