Delhi chief of Bharatiya Janata Party and lawmaker Manoj Tiwari's home was ransacked by unidentified men last night.

About 10 people attacked Tiwari's house in the heart of national capital at a time when the BJP lawmaker was not present at the home. The incident took place at around 1 am. The accused attacked the staffers of the leaders present there.

According to media reports, four people have been arrested and a manhunt has been launched to nab other suspects.

"Around 8-10 people attacked my residence at 159, North Avenue," tweeted the Lok Sabha member from North- East Delhi today.

The actor-turned-politician has alleged that there has been a conspiracy behind the attack.

CCTV footage shows Tiwari's staffers getting into a scuffle with some men a little ahead of the politician's residence, following which the assaulters can be seen charging into the gates of his house, along with others.

"This is a very big threat. It was an attack on my life. Two of our staff members are injured. Their intentions were very dangerous. Looks like a big conspiracy, that too with police involvement. No one should be spared," Tiwari said after the incident.

The accused ransacked the entire house and even the cars were vandalized.

"They were carrying rods. Even a policeman was visible in the CCTV footage, with these people. As per the information I have got they were looking for me. I am not aware of the entire incident we are looking the CCTV footage," Tiwari added.

The 47-year-old politician has said that he will be contacting the Home Ministry over the incident.

Earlier in February, Tiwari's car was attacked by few unidentified men in Mumbai and was warned to stay away from campaigning for BMC polls in Mumbai.
