BJP leader slapped on post by Pawar’s party worker

Maharashtra state BJP spokesperson Vinayak Ambekar was slapped by workers of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) for posting comments against party chief and veteran politician Sharad Pawar. A video of the attack was posted by the state BJP chief Chandrakant Patil.

“Maharashtra Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Pvt. Vinayak Ambekar has been attacked by NCP goons and on behalf of BJP, I strongly condemn this attack. These NCP goons must be dealt with immediately!” reads a rough translation of the Marathi caption.

The video shows some men having an altercation with Ambekar, who is seated at a desk. In the middle of this, one man slapped him.

On Saturday, Marathi actor Ketaki Chitale and a student, Nikhil Bhamre, were arrested for allegedly sharing objectionable posts on Mr Pawar.

A court in Maharashtra today remanded the actor in police custody till May 18.

While Ms Chitale was arrested by the Thane police, Mr Bhamre was arrested in Nashik.

Ms Chitale has been accused of defamation and promoting enmity and spreading disharmony among people.
