TV actor Aansh Arora’s controversy is getting bigger by the day. After the convenience store filed a case against the actor for vandalising the store in Shopprix Mall in Sector 4, Vaishali, on May 12, now Aansh has been booked for attempt to murder. According to a report in Times Of India, 6 masked men barged into the same store, on Sunday (May 19) late night and damaged the property, threatened the staff to withdraw case against Aansh and also fired gunshots. They claimed allegiance to the TV actor.

“On the basis of the complaint filed by a store staff, an FIR against Aansh and five-six unidentified persons has been registered under IPC Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 147 (punishment for rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees), 452 (house-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) at the Indirapuram Police Station,” Sandeep Singh, Station House Officer, Indirapuram Police Station told the leading daily.

According to Abhinav, the complainant, who is a staffer at the store, the incident happened at around 1.55 am. “The men shattered our store entrance by firing at it and barged in. They started vandalising the store with hockey sticks. Before I could dial 100, one of them pointed a gun at me and said, ‘Aansh bhai ke khilaf jo report likhwai hai woh wapas le lo, warna achcha nahi hoga’. He was also asking for the CCTV footage,” Abhinav told the daily, and added that the assailants fired 10 rounds of gun shots.

It was only when the armed security guard of the store fired a shot in the air that the assailants reportedly fled. “While I dialled 100, the security guard outside the store fired a shot in the air, which is when the men fled the spot. The mall security’s Quick Response Team’s (QRT) van, stationed outside the store, was also vandalised by the men, its glass shattered with hockey sticks,” added Abhinav.

The report further states, “By the time the police reached the spot, the masked men had fled. The police took the CCTV footage of the store and filed a complaint against Aansh Arora and six unknown people.”Aparna Gautam, Circle Officer, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad Police while informing that that goods worth Rs 20 lakh have been destroyed and the store will now remain shut for a few days pending renovation, said, “We are trying to ascertain whether Aansh was among those who attacked the store or not. The CCTV footage of the store is being analysed and investigation is on, after which we will make arrests.”

Meanwhile, Aansh is refuting his involvement in the attack and claims that his life is in danger. Addressing the allegations of the store being vandalised, Aansh told TOI, “These allegations that I have vandalised the store and was involved in a firing incident aren’t true. I’m not aware who vandalised their store, but I believe that all this is being done to frame me. I have complained against the Ghaziabad police and that’s why the police officials are trying to frame me in a false case. Since the last two days, I have been getting threat calls from unknown numbers, with people asking me to withdraw my complaint against the police. They have threatened me that if I don’t, I will have to bear the consequences. My life is in danger.”
