After the attack on AAP MLA Alka Lamba on Sunday morning, a video from CCTV camera has now emerged. The video appears to show Alka Lamba enter a shop and throw away the cash receipt generating machine in anger.
Soon her supporters follow her and begin to vandalize the shop.
This video raises a question on the timing of the events. According to news channel NDTV, the CCTV footage is of just before the attack, on the other hand Alka Lamba reportedly said that she had entered the shop after she was attacked.
The order of events, however, is not clear yet. Also, according to Alka Lamba, the attacker worked in a sweet shop owned by a BJP MLA O P Sharma.
Lamba, an MLA from the ruling party, AAP, in Delhi started her Anti drug drive on Sunday morning in Delhi’s Kashmiri Gate area during which she was attacked by a stone.
She was taken to Aruna Asaf Ali hospital for treatment to her head injuries and subsequently released after a while.
This incident had caused huge outcry on social media with Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal saying how proud she was of his MLA colleague. Another AAP leader, Asutosh, had suspected a conspiracy and demanded police’s action into this attack.
Lamba had later tweeted that this incident was not going to deter her from carrying out her campaign against the drug menace in the area. jantakareporter.com has not been able to get her side of the story.
Lamba had won from Chandni Chiowk assembly constituency in this year’s assembly elections.
