Janata Dal United (JDU) Vice President Prashant Kishor suffered injuries on Monday after his car was attacked by female students of Patna University.

Kishor had arrived at Patna University to meet its Vice Chancellor. However, after his meeting, he and his car was attacked by some students.

Poll strategist Prashant Kishor had joined Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal (United) recently.

Kishor was inducted into the party by Kumar, who is also the national president of the JD(U), at the organisation's state executive meeting.

A resident of Buxar district in the state, Kishor had shot to fame in 2014 when he managed the poll campaign for Narendra Modi, then the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP, which went on to put up its best-ever electoral performance.

A year later, he collaborated with Kumar who returned to power for his third consecutive term after registering a handsome victory in the assembly polls which the JD(U) had fought in alliance with the RJD and the Congress.

The chief minister rewarded Kishor by appointing him as his adviser and giving him a cabinet minister rank.

Kishor thereafter worked with the Congress in Punjab where the party returned to power dislodging the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP combine which had been ruling the state for a decade.

His collaboration with the Congress in Uttar Pradesh, however, failed to bear fruit as it won less than 10 seats in the 403-member assembly.
