SRINAGAR: Two BJP legislators on Thursday thrashed an independent legislator in the Jammu and Kashmir assembly for hosting a beef party, triggering all-round condemnation that forced BJP’s Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh to denounce the violence in the house.
The shocking incident took place when Bharatiya Janata Party’s Gagan Bhagat and Rajeev Sharma pounced on Engineer Rashid — whose real name is Sheikh Abdul Rashid — as soon as the house met, slapped him and kicked him.
The assault took place even before Speaker Kavinder Gupta could take his seat. National Conference legislators rushed to Rashid’s rescue and saved him from further beating.
