In the video, Mohammed Shafique, the BJP Minority cell head, is seen forcing the girl’s father to bend in order to place a bottle of water on the his back. Shafique also threatens him after a financial dispute.

She further added that the men held her husband for about 2-3 hours before releasing the video.

Following the incident, Congress spokesperson KK Mishra demanded strict action, saying, “The issue is related to political chaos because of which a daughter has attempted suicide.”

BJP spokesperson Rahul Kothari and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha vice president said that they will investigate the matter and that there is no place for such a person in the BJP.

(The Quint, in association with BitGiving, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for an 8-month-old who was raped in Delhi on 28 January 2018. The baby girl, who we will refer to as 'Chhutki', was allegedly raped by her 28-year-old cousin when her parents were away. She has been discharged from AIIMS hospital after undergoing three surgeries, but needs more medical treatment in order to heal completely. Her parents hail from a low-income group and have stopped going to work so that they can take care of the baby. You can help cover Chhutki's medical expenses and secure her future. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.)
