At the office of MP Deepak Obhrai, who will be joined by a journalist allegedly attacked by UCP supporters last weekend. #yyc #ableg #cdnpoli
A statement from the MP says the journalist was attacked following an outdoor concert in the northeast, and was triggered "by the journalist's views on a UCP nomination". Recently there was a case of alleged ballot stuffing during a nomination process #ableg #yyc
Journalist Kumar Sharma (left) says a group of men attacked him last weekend following a concert
MP Obhrai also presents several photos showing links of the attackers and the UCP mmeber, Hardyal Singh (Happy) Mann #ableg #cdnpoli
Someone was at the scene of the attack and took a photo. Here is a closer look (warning, this may be disturbing) #yyc #ableg #cdnpoli
Obhrai says this is an attack on Canadian democratic values. Relates it to the rhetoric from the US president, who has labelled media the enemy of the people. Urges police to get to the bottom of who committed the assault
The MP would not comment on what he expects from the UCP, and says all questions on their reaction should be directed to them
The UCP has responded to our request for a statement. They condemn the attack, and note that Mr. Mann has not been approved by the party to run at this point. #ableg #yyc
Contacted Mr. Mann's office (and he picked up the phone). Says no comment at this time. Also, police confirmed they are investigating, and will have a release at some point in the future. #yyc #ableg
