A video of Union Minister Babul Supriyo threatening to rip off his constituent’s skin after they staged protests against him in his own constituency Asansol has gone viral.
In the video, Supriyo is seen threatening local population to ‘rip off’ their skin amidst huge protests against the BJP MP. An FIR has also been filed against the local MP at North Asansol Police Station for violating section 144, which was imposed in the area following communal clashes during the Ram Navami celebrations. He’s also accused of assaulting an IPS officer.
Supriyo also got into a scuffle with local residents when they asked him to leave the area immediately.
The West Bengal government on Wednesday had imposed section 144 after fresh incidents of violence were reported in the area. Heavy police and the Rapid Action Force personnel have been deployed in the communally charged area of West Bengal. One person has so far been killed in the violence.
Supriyo later said that he too had filed an FIR against the police personnel, who allegedly assaulted him.
