A mob attacked workers of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) during Republic Day celebrations on Sunday, leaving several persons injured.
A group of people, under the banner of Hindu Krantikari Sena, allegedly attacked AAP workers when they gathered at Ram Bagh Garden to unfurl the national flag, forcing them to run away from the place.

AAP convener Ashok Talwar, who was at the spot, alleged that the unruly crowd uprooted the pole, tore national flags and thrashed workers of AAP. Talwar claimed that the protesters comprising young boys and girls were shouting against AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for speaking against BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

A complaint has been lodged with the police, he said. “It was a narrow escape for all the AAP activists including women who fled from the scene otherwise they might have been killed by the angry mob,” he alleged.

        Why aren't political leaders disown such action and groups? Because they want to instill fear in AAP?
