A video of the incident, which purportedly shows Rudrapur MLA Rajkumar Thukral beating up the women on Friday, went viral on social media.
Thukral was booked under sections 323 and 504 of the Indian Penal Code and Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Two other BJP leaders' name are also mentioned in the FIR, a police official said.
The BJP leader, however, has termed the allegations baseless. "It is a conspiracy to malign my image by making false allegations," he said.
Investigations are on in this case, the SSP said.
According to reports, a panchayat meeting was held at the MLA's house on Friday morning over a couple's relationship. Both the girl and boy's family members were present. After the family members got into a scuffle, Thukral allegedly lost his cool and hit some of the women.
