The incident took place when Adityanath was heading to Lok Bhawan for an event.

In a video, released by a news agency ANI, it is seen that the man who had camouflaged himself with the waiting media at the gate, tried to leap in front of the security vehicle of the chief minister's convoy when it arrived.

He was immediately removed by police and handed over to police.

The man has been identified as Shyamji Mishra of Sonebhadra district. He was reportedly upset over no legal action against two BJP leaders, whom he had accused of illegal mining.

The man had earlier tried to meet the CM a couple of times, but unable to convey his message the man was compelled to take this step.
