On Wednesday (March 24) afternoon, a Congress councillor brutally assaulted a woman in broad daylight in Gobranawapara in Raipur in Chhattisgarh.

As per reports, the accused has been identified as one Mangraj Sonkar. The incident took place after the 4-year-old son of the victim (Durga Sahu) accidentally broke the nameplate of the car. At around noon, Sonkar’s son thrashed the infant after learning about the incident. When the Congress councillor returned home in the evening, he learnt that his car was ‘damaged’.

An infuriated Mangraj Sonkar then called the victim and verbally abused her. When Durga Sahu complained that his son had thrashed her toddler, he got further enraged and slapped her. When her husband tried to intervene, the accused pushed him aside and continued assaulting Durga Sahu. Mangraj Sonkar openly harassed the victim while the locals stood and watched as mute spectators.
