Raipur, Sep 8 (IANS) Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh escaped getting hurt after being attacked by a cow he offered sweets to following prayers to “goumata”, the police said. His security staff escorted the chief minister to safety following the incident Sunday evening some 75 km west of Raipur. Raman Singh had gone to Rajnandgaon to inaugurate nine newly-built cowsheds.
After praying to “goumata” (mother cow), the chief minister offered sweets to a cow. But it tried to gore him.
A police inspector, Arshad Khan, was injured after being knocked down by the cow. He was taken to a hospital where doctors said he may have sustained internal injuries.
Officials said the cow probably got irritated as Bharatiya Janata Party members kept shouting slogans at the venue.
