A counter FIR for loot has been lodged by Bhanu Patel against supporters of BJP MP, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti. In his FIR, Patel alleged that four to five persons including Hamirpur civic body chairman, Kuldeep Nishad, opened fire and snatched his gold chain, mobile and purse, and assaulted him, police said.
Both the cases would be investigated, police said. The Superintendent of Police said Patel was assaulted in which he sustained serious injuries and has been admitted to hospital. Others who sustained injuries are Sadhvi’s gunner, Rahul Tiwari, her supporters, Badan Singh and Kuldeep, he said.
BJP district unit general secretary, Pramod Dwiwedi, however, claimed that the party MP’s supporters were being implicated falsely.
