RAJOURI: Senior PDP leader and former legislator Surinder Choudhary has been booked for allegedly manhandling a BJP worker in Rajouri district, police said on Friday.
A video of PDP workers led by Choudhary barging into a shop and beating a BJP worker Ripu Daman, in Nowshera area, went viral on social media, prompting the police to take action. A case has been registered against Chaudhary and investigation started, police officials said. Daman has been hospitslised following the attack, they said.
BJP leader Vibodh Gupta has condemned the assault on party worker and said the PDP leadership has lost its mental balance out of frustration. Surinder Choudhary has crossed his limit and will surely be punished as per the law of land, but at the same time his true face has been exposed before the masses, he said. “Barbaric assault on BJP leader Ripu Daman by PDP leader Surinder Choudhary is to be seen as an act of terrorism at behest of PDP’s top leadership,” Gupta added.
