Arrah (Bihar), Feb 15 (IANS): Kanhaiya Kumar, the CPI leader and former president of Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) escaped unhurt when his convoy was attacked in Bihar's Arrah district.

The convoy was attacked on Friday and many vehicles were damaged in the stone pelting incident. Kanhaiya supporters alleged that this was the eighth attack on his convoy. Earlier, his convoy was attacked in Jamui, Supaul, Katihar and other areas.

A police officer said on Saturday that Kanhaiya was going to Arrah after holding a meeting in Buxar when the convoy was attacked by some anti-social elements near Bibiganj market.

Kanhaiya's vehicle was damaged in the attack. The police managed to safely move Kanhaiya to another car and bring him to Arrah.

It is alleged that the convoy of Kanhaiya Kumar had hit some bike riders which angered the villagers.

A large number of police arrived after the incident and escorted the convoy safely.

Kanhaiya Kumar is on his "Jan-Gan-Man Yatra" against the NRC and CAA. During this one-month-long campaign, he will reach almost all the major cities of Bihar and will conduct around 50 meetings. He began this campaign from Bettiah on January 30. His visit is scheduled to end on February 29. Bihar goes to polls later this year.
