New Delhi, July 24 (IANS) Members of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) youth wing Thursday attacked the house of expelled party MP Chandrabhan Singh in a high-security zone of the capital. The MP had abstained during the parliament trust vote. Police said the MP was in his North Avenue home - a stone’s throw from Parliament House, the President’s Estate and key central ministries - when it was attacked by about 60 members of the BJP youth wing.

Many MPs live in North Avenue in flats allotted by the government.

“They threw bricks at the house and broke window panes. One person has been arrested and security personnel have been deployed,” a police official said.

The MP from Damoh in Madhya Pradesh was expelled by the BJP for abstaining during the trust vote in parliament Tuesday.
