Union Minister Babul Supriyo courted controversy on Tuesday, 18 September for threatening to “break the leg” of a man and “hand him a crutch” during an event for differently-abled people at Nazrul Manch in Asansol, reported CNN-News18.

Supriyo was invited to the event to donate wheelchairs and other equipments to the differently abled.

The Union Minister reportedly lost his cool when the man was moving during the programme, causing distraction.

He further ordered his security personnel to break the man’s leg and give him a crutch if he “dares to move any further from his place”. Supriyo also asked the audience to clap for the man.

In the video, the singer-turned politician was seen saying, "What happened to you? Any problem? I can break one of your legs."

He further said, “Next time if he moves from there then remove one of his legs, adding, and I will give these people sticks to beat you up. Have you understood? Now clap for this man.”
