Months ago, another BJP MLA Rakesh Rathore alleged of thrashing up a toll plaza employee in Uttar Pradesh. However, he later claimed to be innocent. Speaking to IANS, he said that neither owns a Scorpio car as shown in a video which had gone viral nor has he been to New Delhi in the last six months. “This is not me. The person shown in the video is Mahendra Yadav, a Samajwadi Party leader from Biswa. It is sad the media aired the video and the news without any verification,” he had said. This incident too was captured in CCTV.
