The member of Mangalore City Corporation alleged that a mob of around 30 suspected activists assaulted her. The Hindu Jagarana Vedike has denied the chardes.
The attack, which reportedly occurred in full public view and was purportedly also captured on mobile phones by the attackers, came to light late on Tuesday after the Congress corporator (name withheld) addressed a press conference, reported HT.
According to her, the Hindutva activists first surrounded her and then made a 16-year-old-member of their gang assault her at Kodikere near Mangalore around 4pm.
The video was recorded in mobile phones where a boy can be seen grabbing the victim and attempting to strip her as his comrades laugh and shout pro-Hindutva slogans.
