Mumbai: Some politicians think they are above the system.
A Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLA was caught on camera slapping a Deputy Collector in his office in Maharashtra's Raigad district.
The incident happened when NCP leader Suresh Lad was having a meeting with Deputy Collector Abhay Kalgudkar to deliberate on the disputes regarding land acquisition for an oil pipeline.
It is being said the Kalgudkar lost his cool after a heated argument over compensation being given to the farmers.
Notably, Lad owns a land in the area.
No official complaint has been filed by the official.
