Shoe hurled at Haryana CM

Chandigarh, Feb 16: A shoe was hurled by a man at Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda during a function at Dabwali town Sunday.

The shoe, however, fell well short of its target.

Security personnel immediately pounced on the attacker and were seen taking him away from the venue. The identity of the attacker was not immediately known.

Dabwali in Sirsa district is 265 km from here.

On Feb 2, Hooda was assaulted by an unemployed youth, Kamal Mukhija, at a busy market in Panipat town when the chief minister was proceeding to a rally venue in an open jeep.

The youth was arrested but let off later by police saying he was under depression.
