Anti-Jat quota Haryana BJP MP roughed up

IANS  |  Chandigarh 

A MP from Haryana, who has been openly opposed to reservation to the Jat community in the state, was on Sunday roughed up by some youth at a function in the historical town of Kurukshetra, police said.

The assailants, numbering four, also threw ink at the Kurukshetra Member of Parliament (MP) Raj Kumar Saini.

The MP was not injured in the incident.

The youth came close to the MP, who has been provided tight security, by requesting that they wanted to get a photograph with him when he was leaving the event and then suddenly attacked him.

The assailants were immediately nabbed by people and security and taken into custody.

Police officials said that they were questioning the youth and were verifying their antecedents.
