New Delhi: Members of right-wing group Hindu Mahasabha ransacked the office of Pakistan Airlines situated at Barakhambha Road in New Delhi today. A person has been detained by the Delhi Police.
Reports said some members of Hindu Mahasabha barged into the airlines office shouting slogans in the afternoon. They manhandled the guards present outside the office and vandalised it. Furniture inside the PIA office were also damaged in the attack.
“Around 3:15 PM, four persons entered the airlines office posing as customers and ransacked chairs and furniture. We have arrested a person. We can’t divulge more details right now,” DCP Jatin Narwal said.
The incident comes at a time when India and Pakistan relationship is at crossroads following the January 2 terror attack on the Indian Air Force (IAF) base in Pathankot.
The Foreign Secretary-level talk between both the nations has also been rescheduled. New dates for the meeting is yet to be announced.
While reports in Pakistani media claimed in Wednesday evening that Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar and his close aides have been put in preventive custody and being quizzed over their role in Pathankot attack, New Delhi has made it clear that there has been no official world from Islamabad over this.
Indian authorities have claimed that Azhar had masterminded the Pathankot attack.
