Stone pelting news: Some unidentified people pelted stones at Shatabdi Express near Panipat, causing a crack in the windowpane of a berth occupied by Punjab Advocate General Anmol Rattan Sidhu who was returning after appearing in the Supreme Court in a case against gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.

Police said Sidhu and his team of advocates escaped unhurt, but the AG spoke to the Punjab police chief and narrated him the details.

The incident took place on Tuesday evening (July 12) when Sidhu and his team were returning from the national capital in the Delhi-Chandigarh-Kalka Shatabdi train, a day after they appeared in the apex court.

Just as the train left the Panipat railway station, some people pelted stones at the coach in which Sidhu and his team of advocates were sitting.

Sidhu said those who threw the stones could have been seven to eight in number. When asked if he could have been their specific target, Sidhu said it is a matter of investigation.

Station House Officer, Government Railway Police, Panipat, Raj Kumar said unidentified persons hurled stones at the Shatabdi train.

"No one was hurt. The matter is under investigation."

Sidhu called the Punjab police chief and apprised him about the incident. Later, he gave his statement to police and provided him the details.

Sidhu had appeared in the Supreme Court on Monday in connection with the jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi case who faces several court cases including the one related to the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala in May.
