Malout, March 27

Irked over Centre’s adamant stand over the three farm laws, a group of farmers today allegedly thrashed BJP MLA from Abohar Arun Narang, tore his clothes and threw black ink on him at Malout in Muktsar district.

When Narang reached Malout to address a press conference, he got surrounded by the protesting farmers. Police personnel and BJP workers took him inside a shop, but when they came out the farmers allegedly thrashed Narang and tore his clothes. The MLA was later escorted to a safer place by the police.

Sources said a senior police officer also sustained injuries as he fell on the road in the melee, which continued for about an hour. The farmers ransacked the BJP office and burnt posters and flags. Narang said: “It is a murderous attack on me. I suspect the role of the state government. I demand a thorough probe. Those who attacked me were not farmers. They seemed to be instigated by someone.” Malout DSP Jaspal Singh said: “We will lodge an FIR after recording the statement of the local BJP president.” Muktsar SSP D Sudarvizhi said: “We will investigate the incident and take action accordingly.”
