A BJP leader from Jharkhand was caught on camera abusing and assaulting a transport officer on Tuesday, according to several media reports.

ANI reported that BJP leader Rajdhani Yadav slapped and abused F Barla, district transport officer of Latehar, after the removal of a nameplate from his personal car.

Yadav was later arrested, according to the ANI report.

According to a report in Zee News, Yadav asked Barla why he was not served a notice first. Barla was taken to hospital for treatment.
