Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday became the target of shoe-pelting for the second time, when a youth allegedly hurled a shoe that fell near the stage from where he was addressing a rally in Hisar.
Hooda was addressing a 'sammelan' (meeting) of Backward Classes in the Old Government College here when the youth hurled the shoe towards the chief minister.
The youth was immediately rounded up by policemen and taken to an undisclosed location. The shoe did not hit the chief minister and fell near the stage, eyewitnesses said.
Police said they were investigating the matter and questioning the youth Ajit Singh.
During preliminary questioning, the Kirmara village resident told the police that he wanted to meet Hooda here as he was facing some problems but he was denied permission by the authorities concerned.
On August 22, a jobless youth had hurled a shoe at Hooda during a rally at Mahendergarh in south Haryana.
The footwear hurled by 21-year-old Shakti Singh, who was seated behind the photographers gallery, had also fallen way short from where Hooda was addressing the rally.
