A reverse image search of one of the keyframes led us to a report by The News Minute, carrying stills from a video of the attack. The incident took place in Telangana and not West Bengal, as claimed.
The SHO added that on 31 January, some BJP workers threw stones at TRS MLA from Parkal, Challa Dharma Reddy’s house. The accused were arrested on 1 February.
According to the TNM’s report as well, BJP workers broke windows, pelted stones and chairs, while chanting, ‘Jai Shree Ram,’ at the MLA’s house.
The attack comes in light of the remarks made by Reddy on the Ram Mandir. He had earlier questioned BJP leaders why the people of Telangana should donate for the temple, when they already “have Lord Rama in Bhadrachalam.”
He had also questioned why no accounts were being made on the donations received and accused BJP of politicising the issue, while stating that he wasn’t against the construction of the temple.
