Patna: RJD chief Lalu Yadav’s elder son Tej Pratap landed himself into a fresh controversy when his bouncers thrashed a media person during the seventh and final phase of voting on Sunday in Patna.
Reports suggest that the incident occurred when a cameraman allegedly smashed the windscreen of Tej Pratap’s car.
“Tej Pratap’s bouncers thrashed the cameraman who was just doing his work. He was trying to take his visual when the incident occurred. His leg also got crushed by Tej Pratap’s car”, Video journalists who were present during the incident said.
However, Tej Pratap later dismissed the allegation and said that the attack was part of a conspiracy to kill him.
“My bouncers didn’t do anything. I have filed an FIR and asked the police to take appropriate action against the photographer who was involved in the incident”, Mr Pratap said.
The incident drew strong condemnation from local journalists here who demanded an apology from Tej Pratap. BJP nominee from Patna Sahib Ravi Shankar Prasad also called the incident “unfortunate”....
