Trinamool Congress MLA, Swapan Kumar Beltharia, was caught beating a vendor on camera.

The incident took place in Kashipur of Purulia district in West Bengal while evicting a vendor from the roadside. The entire incident has been caught on camera. When the news channels approached the MLA and TMC leader, Beltharia denied that the incident happened. While the MLA was beating the vendor, people on the spot calmed the situation down by pulling the two men apart.

This is what Beltharia said upon questioning:

Soon, the video was trending over the internet and many users condemned the act.

A user questioned the MLA as to who the man in the video is.


Someone took a dig at the denial.


Could be a memory loss.


Last year, over 100 TMC workers had attacked Union Minister and Bollywood singer, Babul Supriyo’s house over the alleged Rose Valley chit fund scam.
