The workers of MLA Langate Er Rashid and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) exchanged blows during the former's sit-in at Pulwama on Thursday.

Witnesses said that workers of Rasheed got better of BJP activists when they tried to catch hold of the independent legislator during a sit-in outside the Deputy Commissioner's office in Pulwama.

"The BJP workers were thrashed by supporters of Rasheed," said an eye-witness.

The BJP activists, he said, accused Rasheed of being an agent of Pakistan.

However, cops deployed at the venue prevented the warring parties from injuring one another.

The sit-in was organized to protest the killing of a civilian in firing by forces during a demonstration in Naina Batpora village of the district.
