Uttar Pradesh: Samajwadi party leader detained after being caught on camera assaulting BJP spokesperson

The Samajwadi spokesperson, Anurag Bhadouria has been booked under Indian penal code sections 352 and 506 for assault and criminal intimidation

Samajwadi party spokesperson Anurag Bhadoria, was detained by Noida police after being caught on camera getting into a scuffle with his Bharatiya Janata Party counterpart Gaurav Bhatia during a live debate on a television show on Saturday.

Participating in a live debate show on Zee News Hindi, at Film City in Noida’s Sector 16A, SP spokesperson Anurag Bhadouria allegedly assaulted Bhatia. The later, in his police complaint, stated, “While I was part of the panel discussion… he (Bhadouria) manhandled me, physically assaulted me and threatened me of consequences.”

Gaurav Bhatia also shared the video clip of the alleged assault on his official Twitter handle, which showed both the participants engaging in a verbal exchange. Bhadoria is then seen pushing Bhatia away after he was approached. The leaders then brawled on live television even as a few men tried to separate them.

Bhatia claimed that Bhadoria “physically manhandled” him on the news show. “I could have done the same but as a law-abiding citizen, I have given a complaint against him and the law will take its own course now,” he tweeted.

Soon after Twitterati poured in with disgust, condemning such a trivial act,

After Bhatia’s complaint, Bhadouria was detained and later shifted to the Expressway police station. Dozens of SP workers, led by MP Surendra Singh Nagar, held a sit-in at the police station in sector 20, where he was taken earlier, protesting against the detention.

Nagar claimed, “During the show, Bhatia aggressively marched towards Anurag to assault him. Our spokesperson raised his hand in order to defend himself. Seeing this, Gaurav called the UP DGP and dialled the emergency police number to lodge a complaint with the police,” said Nagar.

Manoj Pant, station house officer of Sector 20 police station, said, ”Taking cognizance of the complaint, we have booked Bhadouria under Indian penal code sections 352 and 506 for assault and criminal intimidation.” Meanwhile, the police have also directed the news channel to submit the video clip of the incident.

Political leaders who are the so-called representatives of our country have often been seen indulging in such pettiness. Recently Congress spokesperson Alok Sharma was caught live on camera threatening a journalist.

A similar threat was recently issued by Sanjay Jha, Congress spokesperson after journalist Arnab Goswami was appointed the member of Nehru Museum.

Meanwhile, last year, in what might be called a blatant show of bloodthirsty belligerence, CPM workers from Kerala’s Kannur district had been caught on camera making highly provocative statements against RSS and BJP personnel of the region.
