New Delhi: An Aam Admi Party (AAP) MLA was seen thrashing an alleged eve-teaser, when police stood helplessly watching the incident here in Delhi.

The eight second video, where Saurav Jha can be seen beating up the man, identified as Vikas in front of police officials, took place at outer Delhi's Kirari area on November 14.

Talking to ANI, Jha said that he thrashed Vikas as he and his friends had allegedly molested a girl, living in the same locality.

"A number of cases have been registered against the man and his younger brother. They pass unpleasant comments on the women of the locality. They even abuse and drink in the locality. Vikas' younger brother was accused of gang-raping a woman two years back," Jha said.

A local also backed AAP MLA's statement and said that the boys were involved in hooliganism and eve-tease women living in the locality.

However, Vikas' parents claimed that Jha thrashed him as they refused to pay Rs 25 lakh to the AAP MLA for dismissing the "false" rape case against their younger son.

"Had he committed any crime then he should have been handed over to police. Why the AAP MLA thrashed him, who is he to take law in his hand. Earlier they came to our house and threatened to kill my son also," said Vikas' father.

"They asked us to pay Rs 25 lakh to dismiss a false case against my younger son. We are poor people, we refused to give the money and in a fit of rage, they thrashed my son. All the charges against my sons are fabricated, "alleged Vikas' mother.
