Samajwadi Party leader’s kin slaps police officer flaunting political links

Uttar Pradesh: A nephew of UP legislative council chairman and SP leader Ramesh Yadav today slapped a sub-inspector inside a police station in Etah after he was held for allegedly assaulting hospital staffers who refused give in to his demand for “VIP treatment”.

Bragging of his political links, Mohit Yadav, who was said to be in an inebriated state, was also caught on camera hurling abuses at the cops in the incident, prompting rival BJP to accuse the Samajwadi Party of suffering from “hangover” of power.

“Mohit Yadav is my name…,” said the 24-year-old, before slapping sub-inspector Jitendra Kumar. He was immediately arrested and charged with assault and obstructing an official from carrying out his duty.

Mohit, who is unemployed, had visited a hospital with a relative and “demanded VIP treatment” for an X-ray, refusing to wait for their turn, hospital staff alleged.
