On the last leg of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s five-day Punjab tour, a mob pelted his vehicle with stones at Hassanpur village near here, breaking its windscreen. Kejriwal, who was in the front seat next to the driver, escaped without injury though the shattered glass fell on him.
Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal ordered an inquiry into the incident, which AAP alleged was the handiwork of the Akali Dal and Congress.

The attack took place soon after his motorcade left the resort, where he had interacted with industrialists. Police diverted the convoy through Hassanpur village to avoid traffic on Ferozepur Road.
A minute after taking the diversion, over 200 people surrounded Kejriwal’s car, brandishing lathis and carrying stones. A huge stone was thrown at the windscreen. Pieces of glass fell on Kejriwal, seated on the front seat. He was quickly moved to another car. Kejriwal indicated that Akali Dal and Congress were behind the attack.
