Patiala, August 5

Unknown men allegedly attacked and chopped off a part of the hand of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, Dinesh Mehta, in Rajpura late on Wednesday night. He had to be shifted to Chandigarh for treatment.

The police have registered a case under Section 307 (Attempt to murder) against suspects, who are yet to be arrested.

Dinesh was attacked, when he along with his supporters, was holding a late night meeting to tackle stray cattle menace in Rajpura. “Suddenly few men reached the spot and attacked him with sword and sticks,” said AAP supporters.

Meanwhile, the Rajpura AAP unit has given an ultimatum claiming that if suspects are not arrested in two days, they would hold a protest dharna in Rajpura.

“Goons of the Congress and Akali are the ones, who attacked our leader. The police should identify and arrest them at the earliest,” said AAP workers.
