New Delhi: A BJP councillor in Gujarat's Vadodara was hackled and tied to a tree by local residents on Tuesday over a demolition drive in their locality.
The incident took place when councillor Hasmukh Patel visited a slum in Bapod Vadodara where the demolition work was in progress.
The locals booed him as soon as he arrived and then they dragged and tied him to a tree, media reports said. He was later rescued by the police.
A YouTube video also showed his clothes were torn and he looked troubled.
