Haryana Police have registered an FIR against 50 people for attacking a contingent of Delhi police, which had on Monday gone to a Palwal village to arrest a criminal named Salli.
A team of Delhi police are still camping in Hathin to arrest the hardened criminal, who is believed to be hiding in Guraksar village under Hathin police station in Palwal district.
