New Delhi: The convoy of Sanjeev Balyan, Union Minister of State and Muzaffarnagar Lok Sabha in-charge, came under attack as several vehicles were pelted with stones. The incident occurred while Balyan was addressing a gathering in Madkarimpur village of the Khatauli Assembly.

Upon his arrival in Madkarimpur village, opposition against Baliyan surfaced, leading to a confrontation and subsequent pelting at his convoy. As a result, windows of three vehicles were broken, police said.

Prompt action was taken by the police upon receiving the information, with a heavy deployment of forces to ensure Balyan’s safety. Despite the chaos, Balyan was safely escorted away from the scene.

He added that upon receiving the information, police forces swiftly responded to the situation, including the station in-charge of Khatauli and other officials.
