Attack on ABCL office
Amitabh Bachchan has recently become the target of politics and the manipulation of politicians. The security outside Amitabh's home was beefed up some time back after some miscreants said to be from a political party tried to attack the actor's home with stone pelting and bottle throwing incidents. Now once again, Amitabh's office known as Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited in Juhu in Mumbai was attacked on Friday night with similar stone pelting and bottle throwing incidents.
Amitabh Bachchan is extremely close to Samajwadi party leader, Amar Singh, who is like an extended family member. Some time back MNS party leader Raj Thackeray had levelled accusations against Amitabh saying that he had not done anything for Maharashtra, despite getting fame and fortune from this state. Instead he had done more for his home state Uttar Pradesh. On Friday night, a few miscreants arrived in a Santro car outside Amitabh's office and threw stones and bottles at the empty office. No casualties took place as the incident occurred at night when not many people were around. Deputy Commissioner of Police, Vinay Choube merely stated "We have received a call that a bottle was thrown and police officers have been sent to the spot to verify the facts." The security has been further beefed up outside Amitabh's home and office.
Amitabh's close friend and Samajwadi party leader, Amar Singh immediately accused the MNS party chief Raj Thackeray for the atrocious attacks on Amitabh's home and office. However the police are still investigating the matter and have still not confirmed who is behind the attacks. Although Amitabh has kept himself distant from politics, he still seems to get embroiled in political controversies some way or the other. Earlier it was the possession of illegal farmland in Uttar Pradesh that had got him in a mess with the law. But this time though, Amitabh is being dragged in to a messy political game for no fault of his, but merely due to the reason that he hails from the state of Uttar Pradesh.
