Gujarat BJP Councillor Tied To Tree, Beaten Up Amid Anger Over Demolition”

In shocking incident being reported from Vadodara, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) corporator was brutally thrashed by local women over an encroachment drive in Gujarat. The office told people it had sent a notice to the local councillor prompting him about the proposed action.

The councillor, who was later rescued by police, has sustained injuries in his hands.

The video of the entire incident showing the corporator Hasmukh Patel being tied with torn shirt and being abused by a group of people surrounding him went viral on social media.

"This land belongs to the collector (state government) and he is the one who passes an order". I never get to know these things as I am mere councillor of a small ward. "I have no idea about the decision taken by the municipal commissioner (regarding the demolition)", the corporator, identified as Hasmukh Patel, was heard saying in Gujarati. The mob kept asking him why were the houses that were constructed under the Indira Aavas Yojana razed by the civic body? The matter was highlighted after the video of him being thrashed went viral on social media. It was only after the arrival of the police that the agitated mob untied him.

According to media reports, Hasmukh Patel, after completing the "tiranga yatra", threw the flag on the road and went to his vehicle.
