The Haryana Cabinet minister had gone to Panipat to chair a meeting of “grievance committee” of the district. Both the Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police, Panipat, were also present on the spot.

Talking to The Indian Express, on phone, Vij said, “both the men appeared mentally unstable. I was about to sit in my official vehicle when two men pelted stones at my car. It is indeed a serious security breach. When I spoke to them, they told me that they were protesting against some judgment pertaining to SC/ST Act. Police had taken them into custody. I am about to leave Panipat and shall be heading for my constituency, Ambala from here”.

Both the men were being interrogated by the police.
