"The Nagar Nigam team came without lady officials. They came to vacate a house which was not even in a bad condition. I was attacked inside the house, which is not seen in the video. The Congress land mafia is behind all of this," he added.

The Municipal Corporation team, which was on a drive to demolish dangerous properties ahead of the monsoon, was attacked by the young legislator armed with a cricket bat.

A case has been registered against him and 10 others.
