BJP MLA's aide thrashes 2 youths, held

Gatige, said to be a close aide of the BJP MLA Sanjay Patil was allegedly assaulting the two for supporting their friend's marriage to the MLA's niece.

He thrashed both of them so brutally that a part of the hockey was also broken.

Both the victims are said to be the natives of Kolhapur district of Maharashtra.

Police reluctant to file case against MLA's close aide

As per a report published in Navbharat Times, when one of the victim's father approached a police station in Kolhapur, then they refused to file the case by passing it off by claiming that the incident happened in Karnataka, so the case will be filed there only.

Finally, the case was registered on Nov 10 in Karnataka, but police did not initiate any against the accused.

When both the wounded youths met DIG Bhaskar Rao, then the video was made public.

Then, the police arrested Suresh Gatige along with four others.
