Vadodara, Oct 4: In such a shocking incident, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) corporator in Gujarat was tied to a tree and beaten by the locals over a demolition drive on Tuesday.
The incident held in Vadodara.
A video, which has surfaced on social media, shows Hasmukh Patel being tied up to a tree with his white shirt torn and around 30 people have been held in the case.
Patel was reportedly attacked by local residents who alleged that their homes were bulldozed by the civic body without any prior notice.
However, when they went to the Vadodara Municipal Commissioner’s office, they were reportedly told that a notice in this regard had been sent to Patel. Infuriated by this, the group met Patel, who denied receiving any notice.
But his pleas went unheard. He was dragged by the people and tied to a tree.
The video is now been taking rounds on social media.
