The police said that acting on the complaint of a representative of Vishwas, an FIR was lodged against 15 people including Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) member Munna Singh.
An FIR has also been lodged against 15 AAP workers, including Vishwas, on the complaint filed by Munna Singh, they said.
District Superintendent of Police Heera Lal said that necessary action would be taken after a probe.
Reacting on the incident, Vishwas said that if the police do not take action within two days, then he would ‘gherao’ the police station.
Munna, on the other hand, accused the AAP leader of creating an atmosphere of anarchy in Amethi, and said that his allegations against Congress are baseless.
According to sources, the altercation started after Congress activists objected to AAP workers' slogan, "Abhi to Sheila (former Delhi CM) haari hai, Ab Rahul ki baari hai (Sheila has been defeated, now it's Rahul's turn)", during a 'jhadu yatra' on Friday.

This led to a verbal duel between the activists of Congress and AAP.
However, the AAP leader had alleged that the Congress activists, led by Munna Singh, attacked them at Thishundi village of Amethi's Vadar development block and also threatened to kill them.
