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".
