Angry Dalit villagers attack Nitish's convoy

Angry villagers on Friday attacked the cavalcade of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar with bricks and stones, alleging that the state administration was carrying out only "selective development". The chief minister was at Nandan and Ahinaura as part of his state-wide Vikas Sameeksha Yatra.

While Kumar escaped unhurt in the attack, at least 2 security men sustained an injury in stone pelting by some of the villagers. The stones smashed the windscreens of six vehicles, including those of DGP P.K. Thakur, Patna inspector-general of police (IG) N.H. Khan, Buxar district magistrate (DM) Arvind Kumar Verma and Dumraon SDO Pramod. CM rescued safely, security persons injured.

The CM told security personnel deployed at the venue of the public meeting "do not worry about any protests".
