Ratri Jain | HENB | Agar Malwa | July 21, 2022:: A young man was injured after he was attacked by a group of people armed with sharp-edged weapons for allegedly expressing support for former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma in Madhya Pradesh’s Agar Malwa district on Wednesday, officials said.
The victim Ayush Jadam is a local convener of the Hindutva outfit, ‘Bajrang Dal’ and had purportedly given some statement in support of Ms. Sharma, who was suspended by the BJP last month following a row over her remarks against Prophet Muhammad. Mr. Jadam said the attack was a fallout of a media statement he had given in support of Ms. Sharma. The attack had a clear intention to murder Jadam in a very Jihadi style.
In a statement, Ayush said that during the fatal attack, the Islamists threatened to behead him for supporting Nupur Sharma. Ayush also added that he suspected someone was following him for some days but did not pay much attention to it. “They surrounded me and attacked with sharp weapons. They were saying, ‘cut him into pieces’. I was lucky there was a group of people passing by, and the attackers ran away after seeing them.”
Ayush is now being treated in an Ujjain Hospital and reportedly out of danger.
Following a complaint, the police filed a case against 13 people for the attack on the man identified as Ayush Jadam, 25, and arrested two of the accused, police said.
Agar Malwa’s Superintendent of Police (SP) Rakesh Sagar told PTI that the complainant in the case has claimed Jadam was attacked for supporting Sharma, whose controversial comments about Prophet Mohammad during a TV debate in May had kicked up a huge controversy.
It is a matter of investigation if the victim had indeed supported Sharma and in what manner, he added.
The police arrested two of the accused in the case and a search was on to nab the others, Sagar said.
Jadam sustained head injuries in the assault, the police officer said.
Following the stabbing incident, Bajrang Dal and other right-wing outfits staged a sit-in outside the local Superintendent of Police’s office and demanded swift action against the accused. The police officer said the incident had caused some tension in the area but things were under control after barricades were put up.
