Meanwhile, a cop standing next to the young man tries to lead him away, but he continues questioning Pal. The MLA finally responds after the youth asks, “What have you really done?"

Pal, who appears calm at first, asks the man to come up front and hands him the microphone, after which the MLA starts slapping him.
