Ex-MP Navjot Singh Sidhu’s convoy attacked in Jammu

BJP leader Navjot Singh Sidhu’s convoy was on Thursday attacked by unidentified assailants who pelted the cars with bricks and stones, leaving his driver injured at Bhor camp on the outskirts of Jammu city, police said.

Sidhu was campaigning in the Bhor camp area for the party candidate from Gandhi Nagar Assembly segment, Kavinder Gupta, when some unknown persons hurled stones and bricks at his vehicle. The BJP leader, however, escaped unhurt, a senior police officer said. The attackers were annoyed with Sidhu over his recent remark on their religious book, police said. “The vehicle has been badly damaged. Driver Parveen Singh was injured in the incident and has been hospitalised. Sidhu had a narrow escape,” BJP spokesperson and war room incharge Arun Gupta said.

Blaming Congress for the attack, he said, “We condemn this attack. It is Congress’s and its MLA’s frustration due to the growing popularity of BJP not only this constituency, but in the entire state.”
