Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Shriram Sonkar on Tuesday reportedly abused and slapped policemen in Lucknow's Hazratganj area on being stopped for violating traffic rules (entering one-way), a video showed.

In the video, Sonkar was seen arguing with homeguard, insisting that he will take this route only. And when the cop posted at the Bapu Bhawan crossroad tried to inform lawmaker about the traffic rules violation, he slapped and abused him. If this was not enough when traffic police sub-inspector Prem Shankar Shahi intervened, the MLA along with his supporters started beating up him too.

Talking to Times Now, the MLA said, "Who cares about the "no-entry" board and we will pay the fine if somebody sends us that..." He, however, refused to apologise over the incident.
