A 20-year-old woman from Madhya Pradesh attempted suicide after a video of her father being humiliated by a BJP minority cell head went viral. The leader allegedly forced her father to bend down and then put a water bottle on his back. He then shot 3 videos and circulated it on social media.
Mohammed Shafique, the head of the BJP cell, in the video can be seen threatening him for speaking against him following a financial dispute, according to NDTV.
Her mother says that she watched the video while she was in college. “After she returned home in the evening, she consumed some poisonous substance. We want the police to arrest these men and take strict action,” her mother said. The girl is now admitted to the hospital and undergoing treatment. Her condition is stable.
She added that they held her husband captive for 2-3 hours near Raddi Chowki area on Monday and then released the video.
Opposition demands action
Congress chief spokesman KK Mishra said strict action should be taken against the accused. “The issue is related to political chaos because of which a daughter has attempted suicide,” he said.
Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha’s (BJYM) vice president and BJP spokesperson Rahul Kothari also took notice and said, “We will investigate and take necessary action. There is no place for such a worker in BJP,” as reported by NDTV.
Rameshwar Rajbhar, investigating officer, has said, “A complaint was received from Midas Hospital that a girl had consumed poison. When our officers went to meet her, she was not in a condition to talk to us. We are investigating the matter and will act as per the evidence.”
