The police have arrested a man for throwing black oil on Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in Hisar Thursday.
Hisar IGP Sanjay Kumar said that the incident took place when the CM had gone to a temple. The police said the youth was raising slogans in support of former deputy prime minister Devi Lal. However, Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) workers from Hisar claim he did not belong to the INLD.
The man has been identified as Praveen Sawant, a resident of village Jakhod of Hisar district.
“It was an attempt (to throw black oil on the CM). It seems politically motivated. The accused is being interrogated to establish the real motive,” the IGP said.
