Hathras: After Rahul-Priyanka, Derek O’Brien Manhandled By UP Police, Pushed To the Ground

Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien, who was on his way today to Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras where a 20-year-old was gang-raped and tortured about two weeks ago, was pushed to the ground in a confrontation with police when he and three other party leaders tried to enter the village where the victim lived. In a 32-second video, a man in a white shirt and a helmet can be seen grabbing TMC MP Pratima Mandal by the shoulders to prevent her from walking to the village. Derek O’Brien rushes to rescue her and the man then pushes him to the ground. Earlier, TMC MPs Pratima Mandala and Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar and ex-MP Mamata Thakur could be seen urging policemen with folded hands to let them enter the village. Derek O’Brien could be heard telling the cops: “Let the women go at least.” However, their path was blocked by the policemen. While officials have denied the manhandling of MPs, the TMC leaders are holding a sit-in about 1 km from the victim’s home.
