ADILABAD: Tension prevailed at Bhainsa town, a religiously-sensitive village in the district, when the VHP activists had reportedly pelted the vehicle of AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi with stones on Saturday.

Some police men have been reportedly injured in the incident.

Due to this, the shops and other business establishments have been forced a shutdown in the town.

While the controversial leader of the AIMIM was here to inaugurate a jewellery shop of his follower in the town, the VHP activists were taking a rally protesting his reported refusal to say 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' at the same time.

More than 100 VHP activists have reportedly gathered near Tahsildar's office in the town around 11 am as they had information about the arrival of Asaduddin and tried to obstruct his vehicle.

But the police had successfully held them locked in the Tahsildar office compound, but the protesting activists had managed to hurl the stones at Asad's vehicle.

As the MIM activists too retaliated, some policemen got injured in the incident. Local DSP is monitoring the situation. SP Tarun Joshi has also reportedly left for Bhaina from the headquarters. The  VHP and other Hindu organisations are apparently miffed at AIMIM for its 'anti-national' stand.
