Kanhaiya Kumar convoy attacked again in Bihar | India News


SUPAUL (BIHAR): The convoy of IPC leader Kanhaiya Kumar, who is on a state Bihar campaign tour against CAA, NPR and NRC, was attacked here Wednesday night, police said.

The former UNN student leader escaped unharmed in the attack of a mob that threw stones, although one of the vehicles in his convoy was damaged and his driver was injured, Sudhir Kumar Porika, the SP Task Force, which has Supaul’s additional charge, he told PTI-Bhasha by phone.

“The convoy went to its next destination. Investigations are under way to identify and catch the culprits,” Porika said of the attack, which is the second incident in less than a week.

On February 1, his convoy was attacked in the Saran district.

The ‘Jan Gan Man Yatra’, which began on January 30, had a difficult start when police told Kumar in the West Champaran district that permission for their first scheduled rally was withdrawn at eleven.

Congressman MLA Shakil Ahmad Khan, who has been accompanying the leader of the IPC since the beginning of the tour, blamed “negligence on the part of the police and administration” for the incident.

“It is a small town. The place where the attack took place is less than a kilometer from the collector’s residence. Police personnel and district administration officials were deployed. However, the wicked threw stones, raised slogans and managed to flee taking advantage of the darkness, “Khan alleged.

“I have telephoned the Director General of Police to seek the highest level of intervention. Our yatra will continue for the next few weeks. We are already on the move, having left Supaul for Saharsa, where the next Kanhaiya rally is scheduled for Thursday. We expect the machinery of law and order to live up to the circumstances, “added the MLA.

He also claimed that two vehicles, a bus and a rath (open car with a car shape) were damaged in the attack, sharing images on WhatsApp, and claimed that “the rath driver, Ejaz, was seriously injured. A woman sitting next to him from the driver’s seat has also received bruises. ”

IPC Secretary of State Satya Narayan Singh issued a statement in Patna, strongly condemning the incident and demanding severe action against the guilty and the “guilty police officers.”

The state tour is taking place under the motto of ‘Joint Forum against NPR / NRC / CAA’. It is scheduled to conclude with a rally at Gandhi Maidan in Patna later this month.
