Congress leader P Chidambaram suffered a fractured rib after he was allegedly manhandled by Delhi Police during the party’s protest on Monday against the Enforcement Directorate’s summons to Rahul Gandhi.
“Modi government has crossed every limit of barbarism. Former home minister P Chidambaram was hit by police, his glasses were thrown on the ground, he has a hairline fracture in his left rib. MP Pramod Tiwari was thrown on the road. Head injury and rib fracture. Is this a democracy?” Randeep Surjewala said on Monday.

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram confirmed his injury via a Twitter post, saying that he was “lucky to get away with a suspected hairline crack”.
“When three big, burly policemen crash into you, you are lucky to get away with a suspected hairline crack! Doctors have said that if there is a hairline crack, it will heal by itself in about 10 days. I am fine and I will go about my work tomorrow,” P Chidamabaram posted on Twitter.

Congress leaders and workers took to the streets on Monday in Delhi and various state capitals as Rahul Gandhi appeared before the ED for questioning in the National Herald case.
Hundreds were detained for violating prohibitory orders in the national capital, where several top leaders had converged, and other cities as they tried to march to ED offices despite heavy barricading by the police and protested against the agency’s summons to the former Congress chief.
The opposition party alleged that some of its leaders were manhandled by the police and hit out at the government for “not allowing”‘ peaceful protests.
