A Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader was thrashed and handed over to police after he was allegedly caught molesting women at a Muharram Majlis late on Saturday night while wearing a burqa (veil).

Police have registered a case against VHP district secretary Abhishek Yadav, who is the husband of BJP zila panchayat member Shipra Yadav. Abhishek was reportedly accompanied by another burqa-clad youth who managed to flee from the scene.

As per reports, a Muharram Majlis was organised at Mani Umarpur village on Saturday night. A few women at the Majlis became suspicious of two burqa-clad ‘women’ and forced them to lift their veils.

It was then allegedly revealed that Abhishek and his accomplice had disguised themselves as women and entered the Majilis.

The villagers rushed to the scene and thrashed Abhishek when women accused him of molesting them.

Abhishek’s family, however, claim that the VHP leader was returning home when he was attacked and looted by some people at Mani Umarpur village.
