In an embarrassment to Maharashtra unit of the Congress party, a video has surfaced in which its MLA  Abdul Sattar Abdul Nabi is seen thrashing farmers over a land dispute.

The victims have alleged that the Congress MLA came to the land along with his henchmen and started abusing them.

After that, the farmers were allegedly beaten up by the Sillod MLA and his supporters.

One policeman is also seen in the video which was recorded on June 12. 

The victims have also alleged that the police did not take any action in this matter even after they lodged a complaint in this regard. 

The Congress MLA, however, has denied all these allegations and accused the ruling BJP of hatching a conspiracy against him.

“It was a pre-planned conspiracy hatched by the BJP. I have nothing to do with that piece of land. It’s a mahar hadola land which can be claimed by any dalit person,” Abdul Sattar Abdul Nabi told India TV.
