Chopra flogging incident

The video comes days after a video of a local Bahubali leader assaulting a married woman and a man lying helplessly on the road in the name of ‘summary Justice’ had gone viral on the internet. 

In the video shared by the CPI(M) leader, the accused is seen manhandling a woman and a man. The accused threw the victims on the ground and started assaulting them with cane sticks in his hand and kicked the woman several times. While the woman could be seen screaming and rolling on the road in pain, a large crowd gathered there didn’t come forward to help the victims.

The incident took place in Chopra’s Lakshmipur village in the Dighalgaon area. The accused is identified as a local Bahubali leader Tajemul, who is popular as JCB in the area. He allegedly assaulted the victims over an allegation of ‘extra-marital affair’. As per media reports, he ran Taliban-style ‘quick justice’ through his ‘Insaf Sabha’ and is a close associate of Chopra MLA Hamidur Rahaman.

Update: This report has been updated with the clarification issued by the TMC spokesperson of the incident being from 2021
