India, Oct. 26 -- The Bhim Army, a Dalit rights organisation, has accused some goons of firing at the cavalcade of its chief Chandrashekher Azad in Bulandshahar in western Uttar Pradesh (UP) on Sunday.

Azad's media coordinator Dr Kush said the Bhim Army chief addressed a rally in Bulandshahar on Sunday in support of Azad Samaj Party's candidate Hazi Yameen, who is contesting in the upcoming assembly by-election for the Bulandshahr Sadar seat slated to be held on November 3.

He said that Azad was returning from Bulandshahr in the evening, when some unidentified goons fired at his cavalcade and disappeared.

Azad's supporters gathered at the spot and protested against the firing incident.
