The Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) candidate from Ludhiana-West assembly segment, Ahbaab Singh Grewal, was allegedly faced an attack by some people in Baghapurana village of Moga district on Friday evening.

While no one got injured and he has not named any party, the police detained two men and said it appeared to be a case of a fight among the group with whom Grewal was holding a meeting. It was around 6.30 pm when Grewal was taking a meeting of the party workers regarding a planned protest on Saturday over an earlier attack on some AAP volunteers. He said the 10-12 attackers targeted him particularly but ran away when party workers intervened, hence no one was injured.

Moga senior superintendent of police (SSP) Snehdeep Sharma said, “Two persons who were apprehended by AAP workers have been detained by the police. It has emerged that a feud took place between those present in the meeting.” Police will record the statements before taking any further action.

On September 11, the AAP held a well-attended rally at Baghapurana where its chief Arvind Kejriwal released the party’s poll manifesto for farmers.
