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.

    Anyone destroying any property in anger should be put in jail for a very long time. Letting the Shiv Sena or any other Sena take the law into its own hands undermines democracy and shows lack of law and order, this affects people who use those services. Attacking the PIA offices does not solve anything, real men fight terrorism and not business houses.

      The incidence in Malda has not been covered by the media, unfortunately many times Hindus are their leadership are equally involved in the terrorism, just like Dumbta Banerjee has let the Bangla Deshis run Kolkata. The lack of law and order in Kolkata should be taken seriously. Modi and Rajnath Singh are silent, this silence will affect all Indians one day/

              How is it "Hindu"? Is it licenced as such? This notorious device to defame the Hindu community is illegal and must be stopped forthwith. Tomorrow Hafiz Saeed will set up a Hindu Sena in stan and kill 132 school children in Peshawar or somewhere in the SWAT valley and the international media will quote only the Indian media. In such matters, the Supreme Court needs to take suo motu action and instill some good sense in the minds of all concerned.

                Good thing. These people are pure and simple goons. Hinduism does not teach violence - nor rowdyism. With their disgraceful acts, they cause embarrment to a good, peaceful religion. Glad to see they are lodged where they belong. Mrs Sunitha Kumar, USA

                  When someone dies on the Battle Front you can bet it wont be one from these Sena_s. As to their Caste Mark so prominent on their foreheads, it is the first one to go when they board a plane to travel out. So much for these overfed bullies.
