Bihar: CM Nitish Kumar's convoy attacked in Nandar, Buxar

While Kumar escaped unhurt in the attack, at least 2 security men sustained an injury in stone pelting by some of the villagers.

Nitish was not hurt in the incident, which occurred around 1pm at Nandan village when he was returning to the Dumraon sub-divisional headquarters, around 110km west of Patna, after taking stock of development works at the village as part of his Vikas Karyon Ki Samiksha Yatra. "Although, the security persons have received some injuries in the attack", officials quoted as saying.

Kumar was on his way to Yadav-dominated Nandan panchayat in Buxar when a group of unknown people allegedly pelted the former's convoy with stones.

As per media reports, a section of people was not happy with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision to avoid a visit at lower community. In order to grab CM's attention and to show him the real situation, they started hurling stones at his convoy.

The Chief Minister urged all to make his January 21 human chain against dowry and child marriage successful. Some youths also shouted slogans against Nitish Kumar.

"I am not the one who runs the government sitting in the state capital".

"Some people are pursuing the politics of provocation and instigation against me, as my government's initiatives aimed at the state's development were harming their selfish interests", he said.
