Jaipur: Five persons have been arrested
for allegedly attacking a Rajasthan minister by hurling chilly
powder at him during a marriage function in the state`s
Jhunjhunu district, police said on Friday.

Minister of State for Health Rajkumar Sharma had gone
to attend a marriage function in Dumra village in Nawalgarh
town, 273 kms from here, when a group of persons led by local
village head Budhram suddenly hurled chilly power at the
minister last night.

"The main accused, Budhram, is absconding, but we
arrested his brother Sahi Ram and four others namely Vijay,
Sanjeev Kumar, Jagdish and Bhagirath late last night who were
involved in the crime," Additional Superintended of Police
