New Delhi: A 25-year-old Shiv Sena candidate in Sunday's Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls was stabbed by two unidentified people on Thursday, police said adding that he is out of danger.

Sunil Kumar Chikara was stabbed around 10.15 a.m. at Sector-11, Rohini in west Delhi and was rushed to Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar Hospital.

He is contesting the MCD elections from Rohini's ward number-21.

"He had a stab injury on his back," said a police official. According to police, at the time of the incident he was heading to a nearby barber's shop. He is a resident of Sector-16 Rohini.

A case has been registered against unidentified people. "As per Chikara's statement, the accused were unknown to him. A hunt is on to nab them," said the official.
