Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Subrat Pathak, accompanied by 20 to 25 males, had allegedly damaged into the home of the tehsildar, Arvind Kumar, and assaulted him over the distribution of ration to individuals talked about in a listing despatched by him.
In a collection of tweets, Mayawati wrote, “The incident from Kannauj where an honest Dalit tehsildar was beaten by a BJP MP is shameful. What is more concerning is that he is still roaming scot-free instead of going to jail.”
Demanding that Adityanath look into the matter, she wrote that non-repetition of such an act with any Dalit within the state should be ensured. “Stern action is needed against the MP. This is what the BSP demands,” she wrote.
A case has been registered towards Pathak and 25 unidentified males, and round 10 automobiles seized from the location of the assault.
Speaking to media, the tehsildar had earlier mentioned that he had defined to the MP over the cellphone that different senior officers had been trying into the distribution of ration to individuals talked about in his listing. However, regardless of the reason, the lawmaker abused and threatened him.
Sometime later, Pathak and his aides barged into his home and thrashed him, he had mentioned.
Pathak’s supporters have denied the incident, saying that that they had gone solely to debate some growth tasks with Kumar.
