The incident took place when Nimbalkar was addressing an election rally at Padoli Naigaon village in Kalamb taluka. During the rally, a man along with a group came close to Nimbalkar, who represents the Osmanabad Lok Sabha constituency, on the pretext of shaking hands with him, a police official said.

"While greeting the MP, the man attacked him with a knife and immediately fled. Nimbalkar got hurt on his hand but escaped a major injury because of his wristwatch," he said.
