PDP, BJP workers clashed in Rajouri; scores injured

Five people were injured today in a clash between the PDP and BJP workers during an agitation in Rajouri for a separate Nowshera district in J&K.
The BJP and PDP are allies in the Mebooba Mufti government.
“Five people were reportedly injured in an assault by some people in Nowshera belt (Rajouri district),” a senior police officer said.
Sarpanches Bhadur Singh and Sukhdev Singh, Chhotu Ram Choudhary, Narinder Kumar, alias Mangu, and Om Parkash were injured, he said, adding that they were referred to the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Jammu after treatment at Rajouri.
The police have registered a case and the matter is being investigated, the officer said.
BJP MLA Ravinder Raina in a statement alleged that the PDP workers had assaulted his party leaders in Nowshera and “critically” injured them.
The incident took place during a peaceful procession. PDP leader Om Prakesh Choudhary assaulted Bhawani Mandal president Badhur Singh and BJP district chief Narinder Kumar, Raina said.
