Amid violent protests by farmers in Madhya Pradesh, a video had surfaced purportedly showing Khatik inciting people to set a police station ablaze. The video that had gone viral on social media, was shared on Twitter by BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya whose son Akash Vijayvargiya was held for attacking the Indore municipal corporation staff earlier this year.

Khatik, who represented Karera Assembly segment, was staging a protest at Karera police station in Shivpuri district against the killing of farmers in Mandsaur police firing.
