According to BJP MLA Dal Bahadur Kori, the police was hitting people who came to visit Rahul Gandhi with lathis.
"Innocent people were attacked by police lathis. I came here running as I was informed of the beating. I got a call and was informed that people were attacked by Congress workers, but when I came to talk to police, I was attacked instead", Kori told media here.
He also alleged that they were attacked by the Congress workers.
Amidst the whole chaos, a heated argument also took place between the police officials and Amethi MLC Deepak Singh.
