Radadiya video sent for forensic test: Police
The Gujarat Police on Monday said that they have sent a video purportedly showing BJP MP from Porbandar, Vitthal Radadiya, beating up an elderly man at a religious function, to a forensic laboratory.
We have started a probe into the video showing Radadiya kicking the man at a religious function at Jamkandorna in Rajkot district, Superintendent of police (Rajkot rural) Antarip Sud said.
The video had gone viral on the social media.
“We have initiated investigation. The video has been sent for forensic examination, and we expect the report soon. Based on report we will be able to take further action,” Sud said.
“A police team has also been sent to the site where the event was held so that we could know what exactly happened,” he said.
However, Radadiya has denied kicking the person. The MP said the man seen in the video was at a religious function where he (the elderly man) was “trying to spread superstition”.
On Sunday, the Jamkandorna police had said they had not received any complaint regarding the incident.
