The incident is really unfortunate. I don't know the reason behind the attack but it happened all of a sudden. Around 4 rounds were fired. The vehicle I was in was attacked. I am sure if police inquires properly they will be able to identify the assailant.
If police sources are to be believed, shots were fired at two people present in Naresh Yadav's convoy. They are also linking this attack to a gang war between two groups.

and the volunteers accompanying him while they were on way back from temple.
At least one volunteer has passed away due to bullet wounds. Another is injured.
AAP won 62 seats in the Delhi election polls, whereas BJP won 8 seats. Congress and other parties won 0 seats. The incident happened hours after the party celebrated the election results.
