New Delhi: A group of activists, allegedly owing allegiance to a Hindu outfit, pelted stones at the Delhi residence of MP Mehbooba Mufti at Shahjahan Road in the posh New Delhi district. They were protesting the cancellation of land allotted to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board in Jammu and Kashmir. The incident took place on Sunday around 2.30 pm. Mufti, from the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP), represents the Anantnag constituency in Jammu and Kashmir. However, according to sources, the protesters also threw a bottle at one of the windows of the building. According to sources, at the time of the incident, the MP was not at home. This infuriated the protesters who threw pamphlets and other literature on the compound. 'The activists had reached Mufti's house to present a memorandum of protest. A few of them went to the rear side and threw stones wrapped in red cloth and even damaged a car parked there. No arrests have been made till now. However, we are investigating the case and may detain a few persons for questioning,' said an officer.
