BJP youth workers allegedly attack Swami Agnivesh in Jharkhand
Social activist Swami Agnivesh was allegedly attacked on Tuesday by workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party's youth wing in Jharkhand's Pakur district, police said, prompting chief minister Raghubar Das to order a probe into the incident. Agnivesh said he suspected it to be a sponsored assault and demanded a judicial probe. “As soon as I came out of the venue, BJYM and ABVP activists attacked me without any provocation. They alleged that I was speaking against Hindus,” he was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. “I thought Jharkhand was a peaceful state, but my views have changed after this incident,” he said.
