Nephew of UP legislative council chairman and SP leader Ramesh Yadav on Wednesday slapped a sub-inspector inside a police station in Etah after he was held for allegedly assaulting hospital staffers who refused give in to his demand for "VIP treatment".

Bragging of his political links, Mohit Yadav, who was said to be in an inebriated state, was also caught on camera hurling abuses at the cops in the incident.

Yadav visited a hospital with a relative and "demanded VIP treatment" for an X-ray, refusing to wait for their turn, hospital staff alleged.

When he was refused, he allegedly assaulted a lab technician and a doctor. The hospital called in the cops. When he was brought to the police station, he abused Kumar and hit him before being overpowered.

Distancing himself from his nephew's actions, Ramesh Yadav said:

He will be beaten if he slaps policemen.... I have nothing to do with it. I was not there. I am in Lucknow

The leader described Mohit as a "brat".

SSP, Etah, Satyarth Anirudh said they will ensure that the accused gets stringent punishment.
