The motorcade of Barmer BJP candidate Sonaram was attacked when he was campaigning in Shiv area in the district, with party members alleging that supporters of expelled leader Jaswant Singh were behind it.
Sonaram said the attack took place when he was visiting Shiv area yesterday with his supporters for soliciting votes. The windscreens of two vehicles in his convoy broke in the attack.
Though no complaint has been filed with the police so far, "we have identified some of the persons involved in the attack last evening," SP, Barmer, Hemant Sharma said today.
"I will give a complaint against eight identified persons. The attack was executed at the behest of a rival candidate," Sonaram said, without naming Jaswant Singh.
The SP said that appropriate action against those involved in the crime will be taken once the complaint is filed.
