Amar Singh: My life in danger
Claiming a threat to his life, Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh on Monday alleged that the attack on his party office was handiwork of BJP and its affiliates.

He claimed that last week he was tipped off by a boy from Meerut that an attempt could be made on his life during his Mumbai visit.

"He overheard someone talking over telephone in a cyber cafe...he told me and I inturn informed the National Security Advisor, Intelligence Bureau and the Commissioner of Police," Singh told tonight.

He said during his recent Mumbai visit, the Mumbai and Delhi police had made elaborate arrangements for his security.

"Delhi Police Chief told me to visit Mumbai without any fear," he added.

"During my Bhopal visit, Bajrang Dal activists angry over my statement on attacks on churches had brandished swords," he said claiming a similar incident had taken place at Dehradun airport.

On the threat of Sri Ram Sena activists to target his house next, Singh claimed they were free to attack him as it would only prove that he was the true secular voice of country's political class.

On the attack on SP central office in the National Capital allegedly by Sri Ram Sena activists, Amar Singh claimed it to be the handiwork of BJP and Sangh Parivar.

Activists of Sri Ram Sena (SRS) this evening ransacked the central office of SP, "in retaliation" to the alleged defamatory comments made against slain Delhi Police Inspector M C Sharma by SP leadership.
