New Delhi: An Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) member suffered serious injuries when he burnt himself during a protest in Kanpur on Wednesday.
The man, who is yet to be identified, was trying to burn the effigy of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi when the freak incident took place.
The ABVP members had gathered at a busy intersection of the city to protest against the Owaisi's recent remark that he will chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' even if a knife is put on his throat.
The 25-seconds video shows the fellow-protesters trying to douse the fire and removing his cloths while the man running on road.
The AIMIM chief on Sunday, while addressing a rally, has said that, "Nowhere in the Constitution it says that one should say: Bharat Mata ki Jai."
