Hundreds of protesters have gathered outside Bhaderwah police station and are demanding that an FIR be registered against right-wing activists who attacked independent legislator Er Rashid.
Rashid and his PRO had sustained injuries allegedly after activists of BJP, RSS and VHP pelted rocks at his cavalcade outside the Bhaderwah town around 1pm earlier today.
The protesters were shouting slogans against the BJP, RSS and VHP while demanding that a case be registered against the attackers.
"These attackers which are a threat to free society should be booked under the draconian Public Safety Act (PSA)," demanded a protester.
They said that they are holding consultations with the police administration and want to ensure that the attackers are immediately arrested.
