A police van carrying accused Shraddha Walkar murder accused Aftab Poonawala was attacked by a group of people with swords outside the Forensic Science Laboratory in Rohini where he was taken for a polygraph test on Monday. The attackers flashed swords toward the police personnel but cops present in the vehicle pointed guns at them to defend and overpowered them. They detained the accused. 

A car stopped the police van in the evening after overtaking it. A few people came out of the car and started attacking the van carrying Poonawala, they said.

The van was driven out of the spot while two attackers were detained, the police said, adding the incident took place around 6.45 pm.

In videos of the purported incident circulating on social media, a police personnel could be seen pulling out his service revolver to disperse the attackers carrying swords.

In one of the clips, a few

attackers claimed that they belonged to a right-wing group and that their intention was to avenge the killing of Shraddha Walkar by chopping Poonawala into pieces.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) G S Sidhu said, "Two persons have been detained for questioning."

According to the police, the two detained have been identified as Kuldeep and Nigam. Further legal action will be taken as per the law, they said.

Reacting to the incident, Hindu Sena national president Vishnu Gupta, said, "Whatever these activists have done is by reacting to their personal feelings. The whole country got to know how Poonawala cut a Hindu girl into pieces."

"The organisation does not support any such work which is against the Constitution of India. We believe in the law," he said.

According to reports, police personnel guarding the van had to open fire in the air in defense.
