The farmers who attacked Sharma belonged to Kisan Sangarsh Committee and they were blocking the toll booth. Police rescued Sharma and took him to the Dasuya Police Station.
Sharma said it was surprising that there was no policeman deployed at the spot where the farmers were sitting on the dharna.
"I don't think farmers are behind the attack. Miscreants who want to defame farmers are behind the attack," Sharma claimed.
