Aditi Singh and members of the zila panchayat were on their way to vote on a no-confidence motion against the zila panchayat head Avadesh Singh when they were attacked by a group of men in which three cars in the convoy overturned.
Aditi Singh has blamed Dinesh Singh and his brother for the attack. An FIR has been registered against Dinesh Singh, his brother and 12 others.
Aditi Singh alleged that some zila panchayat members are missing after the incident.
Inspector General of Police S.K. Bhagat said that necessary action was being taken in the matter.
