There was a dispute on Facebook

According to the police, three days ago there was a protest in the collector under the banner of All India Brahmin Mahasabha. This demonstration was organized by Rajat Sharma. There has been a lot of debate on social media between Rajat Sharma and Santosh Pandhari, co-district minister of victim Vishwa Hindu Parishad, regarding this protest. The controversy between the two over Facebook posts and comments has steadily grown. In this debate, both had also threatened to see each other.

SSP Hemraj Meena says Santosh and defendant Rajat Sharma, who were injured in the incident, already know each other. They were supposed to meet, but there was a difference of opinion between the two regarding the protest which was held three days ago. In this difference of opinion, Rajat Sharma attempted to kill Santosh Pandhari by shooting him.

Five teams were formed to arrest
