NEW DELHI: AAP leader Alka Lamba on Monday denied vandalizing a sweet shop in Kashmere Gate, saying the video which showed her throwing things was taken after she was attacked during an anti-drug drive.

“As far as this footage is concerned, I have seen it. The shop is of BJP MLA OP Sharma and the attack took place outside his shop and the attacker was also caught from this shop,” Lamba told ANI.

“This video is after the attack took place. I had just entered the shop with one of AAP volunteers post the attack and asked that the attacker be brought out, we haven't vandalized the shop,” she added.

The Chandni Chowk MLA, who suffered, head injuries after allegedly being pelted with stones yesterday, further alleged that she was attacked in the presence of policemen, but no action was taken by them.

The CCTV footage shows Lamba reaching straight for the shop counter and throwing away some items on the counter, after which her supporters also vandalised the shop.
