Ex-Gujarat minister Nitin Patel injured as cow hits him during 'Har Ghar Tiranga' rally

He was taken to a private hospital where X-ray and CT scan showed that he had a minor fracture in his left leg, Patel added.

Former Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel suffered a minor fracture in his left leg after a stray cow rammed into him during a 'Har Ghar Tiranga' rally in Mehsana district.

A large number of people had joined in a procession organised by the state BJP at Kadi in Mehsana district to celebrate 75 years of Independence, Patel told reporters at his residence in Ahmedabad.

"A Tiranga Yatra had been organised at Kadi where nearly 2,000 people participated. It had completed almost 70 percent of the distance and reached a vegetable market when a cow suddenly came running," Patel said.

In the commotion, he and a few others were thrown down to the ground, he said.

In a video clip, the cow is seen rushing past them and security personnel and others coming to Patel's help.

He had difficulty walking when he stood up, he said.

He was taken to a private hospital where X-ray and CT scan showed that he had a minor fracture in his left leg, Patel added.

"The doctors fixed a temporary splint to stabilize the leg and advised me to take rest for 20-25 days," he said.
