BJP Councillor Manish Kumar was caught on camera thrashing a sub-inspector who had come with a woman lawyer to eat at a hotel owned by the councilor in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut in the wee hours of Saturday, 20 October.

The sub-inspector had arrived at the hotel with the lawyer to have dinner. The police official and the lawyer reportedly got into an argument with a waiter there. Manish Kumar allegedly beat them up following the scuffle.

Manish Kumar was later taken into custody based on the written statement submitted by the lawyer.

There was an altercation yesterday. I was asked why I dared to beat him (the sub-inspector) up. But I did not beat him up. There was an altercation under the influence of alcohol. They (police) are not willing to interrogate the sub-inspector. They (police) are ignoring the fact that he (the sub-inspector) was supposed to be on duty at the fair but was at the bypass with a woman.
