BJP lawmaker's car attacked in Gujarat

IANS  |  Bhuj 

The car of legislator from Bhuj Nima Acharya was attacked by unidentified persons near Loriya village of the district on Sunday.

Acharya was passing along the highway near Loriya when the attackers started pelting stones at her car and smashed its window panes.

The driver immediately sped off and the legislator managed to escape unhurt.

She was later closeted with regional leaders and party supporters at the Bhuj Circuit House.

When reporters confronted her, the assembly member was all smiles and evaded questions related to the attack on her car.

However, her remark that "the party's image will be affected (if she discussed the attack in public)" set the tongues wagging that the incident was organised by party insiders to garner sympathy.

No police complaint has been lodged yet.
