Attackers brag about attacks on social media

Following the incident, two alleged attackers released videos bragging about their actions.

They claimed they attacked Kumar because he raised separatist slogans and made remarks against the Indian Army.

Hamni chaant kha jawab dia hai (We have given the answer with our attacks),” the two men, who call themselves the “Lions of Sanatani,” are seen saying in the video.

Kumar accuses rivals of plotting attacks

Kumar, meanwhile, accused his rival Manoj Tiwari of orchestrating the attack due to his “rising popularity”.

He claimed that the public would respond to this violence with votes.

Kumar is contesting from the northeast Delhi seat in the Lok Sabha elections scheduled for May 25 against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate.

Tiwari, the sitting MP from the constituency, is the only MP in Delhi who has not been replaced by the party.
