Bantwal, May 27, 2019: A video in which a BJP worker is seen loudly abusing and issuing death threats to District Youth Congress Chief and defeated candidate Mithun Rai, has gone viral on social media.
It has been gathered that the video was shot during the victory celebrations of the BJP by the Badakabail BJP committee at Badakabail junction on the night of May 23.
In the video some activists are seen saying " We will break Mithun Rai’s limbs if he intervenes in Bajrangdal affairs, if necessary we will even kill him (Thaleyannu Thegeyutteve)." A BJP activist with a saffron band tried to his forehead and waiving a saffron flag is seen saying so.
Superintendent of Police B M Lakshmiprasad has said a case has been registered under Section 108 for making a provocative statement. Further investigations are underway, he added.
