Pathankot: Bhoa MLA Joginder Pal has found himself in trouble once again, this time for assaulting a journalist who posed pertinent questions before him.
The matter came to light when the journalist had been to a petrol bunk after reports surfaced that the fuel had been adulterated.
It was at the same time that the MLA had also arrived at the petrol bunk and when the journalist questioned him about the incident, Joginder Pal allegedly lost his cool and assaulted the journalist.
The journalist said that Jogindar Pal caught him by his neck and threatened to kill him. Pal however has denied claims and stated that he had gone to the bunk to fuel his own vehicle and didn’t assault anyone. He further alleged that the matter was deliberately given this colour to ruin his image.
