Shoe hurled at Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda (February 16, 2014)

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.

Hooda was addressing a gathering at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of a railway over-bridge when Raja Ram, aged 45, allegedly tossed the footwear at him, police said. Security personnel immediately pounced on the attacker and were seen taking him away from the venue.

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.
