Agra: Union minister Ram Shankar Katheria had a narrow escape when shots were fired near his official residence during a clash between activists of BJP-affiliated ABVP and NSUI at Dr BR Ambedkar University here.
Katheria, Union minister of state for human resources and local MP, was about to board his vehicle yesterday when the shots were fired at an ABVP activist, police said.
Later, a case was registered against five NSUI activists, including university students union president.
An FIR was registered on the basis of a complaint filed by Durgesh Thakur, who was attacked at New Agra police station last evening.
