A BJP MP has been caught on camera slapping a wrestler during a national championship match in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand.
Brijbhushan Charan Singh, president of the Indian Wrestling Federation, was seen in the video beating the young wrestler twice before leaving the stage.
Mr Singh, who represents the Kaiserganj constituency of Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha, was the chief guest on the first day of the Under-15 National Wrestling Championship at the Shaheed Kanbat Roy Indoor Stadium in Ranchi.
The wrestler was not allowed to compete because he was too old.
However, he continued to urge Mr Singh to allow him to compete under the age of 15, following which the MP lost his temper and slapped him.
