A video clip showing the Karwan Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA), Mr Kausar Mohiuddin, ‘hitting’ a man with a ruler in an office went viral in the city on Sunday.
Sources said that the name of the person being hit was Sarwar.
He was said to work at the office of a Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) leader.
Sources said that Mr. Sarwar had allegedly consumed alcohol and came to work. Mr. Mohiuddin, the sources claimed, was reproaching him in a jocular manner.
The incident was said to have taken place two or three days ago.
“The entire incident was done in a playful manner. There is no element of anger or aggression. There is no reason to believe that the person was beaten by the MLA,” said a source.
Later in the day, Mr. Sarwar made a video clip in which he purportedly played down the incident.
He said that he had consumed alcohol and Mr. Mohiuddin did not hurt him and that the issue should not be taken seriously.
