BJP Legislators Thrash Independent MLA Inside Jammu and Kashmir Assembly For Holding Beef Party

Srinagar, October 8: In a shocking development, BJP MLA Ravinder Raina thrashed independent MLA Rashid Engineer inside the J&K Assembly for hosting a beef party at MLA Hostel yesterday in defiance to the controversy over beef ban in Jammu & Kashmir, which has been stayed by the Supreme Court for two months.

The MLA was pushed to the ground and beaten up. Other MLAs rushed in to rescue him. Rashid and his supporters too hit back and were seen slapping the BJP MLA. Despite the requests from BJP MLAs, Engineer Rashid hosted a beef party and invited everyone to have a taste of beef.

Former J&K CM and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has condemned the incident, saying MLAs have not come to the House to beat up anyone and such incidents lower the dignity of the House. He and his MLAs have staged a walkout from the Assembly.
