Hisar: Chaos prevailed as a helicopter that had brought BJP MP Hema Malini for an election rally here today was mobbed, leaving one person injured who was hit by a blade of the chopper.

As the helicopter carrying Hema landed at Barwala village in the district, people rushed towards it to have a glimpse of
the actress from close.

In the melee, the blade of the chopper at its end hit the neck of Jagwinder Singh, a resident of Sarsod village in the
district, police said.

Singh has been admitted to a private hospital and is stated to be out of danger, they said. However, Hema went on to address the rally where she sought support for party candidate Surinder Punia.

Earlier at a rally at Adampur, the MP had a tough time in reaching the dais as she was mobbed there also.

Hema, the MP from Mathura, is canvassing for party nominees in Haryana.

BJP is testing electoral waters in Haryana on its own this time. The party has fielded candidates on all 90 Assembly seats in Haryana, which will go to polls on October 15.
