Shiv Sena fields man accused of shooting at Umar Khalid

Bahadurgarh: The Shiv Sena has given tick to Naveen Dalal, one of the accused in Umar Khalid attack case, in the Assembly polls.

The 29-year-old ‘ gau rakshak’ would be fielded from Bhadurgarh in Jhajjar district, Haryana, reports say.

Dalal said that he joined the Shiv Sena six months ago as he found his ideology and the party’s beliefs in “nationalism and cow protection” were similar.

“Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress governments don’t have anything to do with farmers, martyrs, cows or the poor,” Dalal was quoted as saying.

On August 13, 2018, Dalal and another accused Darwesh Shahpur were allegedly attempted to shoot Khalid outside Constitution Club in New Delhi.

Two shots were fired but Khalid went unhurt, witnesses.
