Bharatiya Janata Party Ajmer, Feb 11 (ANI): A shoe was flung at Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front leader Yasin Malik here on Friday, when the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) activists staged a protest against his Rajasthan visit.

According to reports, the shoe, however, missed Malik, who was standing on the third floor of a hotel in Ganj locality where he is staying for the last two days.

The BJP activists led by party MLA Vasudev Devnani burnt an effigy of Malik, and demanded that should be asked to leave the city immediately.

The activists also raised slogans against him in front of the hotel.

“We cannot tolerate the presence of anti-social elements like Yasin Malik in the holy city,” said Devnani.

The MLA further said a memorandum has been submitted to District Collector Manju Rajpal in this regard.

“While BJP activists were stopped from unfurling the national flag at Lal Chowk in Kashmir, an anti-national person is roaming freely in the country and we are against it,” added Devnani.

Earlier today, at least five persons were injured, when protestors clashed with the Srinagar Police over reports that the BJP activists in Ajmer attacked Malik. (ANI)
