As NC patron along with several other leaders of the party reached the village to express sympathy with the family, scores of women took to streets and held a protest against his visit.
The women police charged batons on protesters and during the clashes at least four women protesters and a constable, Gulshan, was injured. One of the injured protesters, Zahida Jan, was shifted to local hospital for treatment.
However, Abdullah and other NC leaders visited and left the venue safely.
