Kerala Congress (B) MLA K B Ganesh Kumar, whose party is supporting the ruling LDF, and his driver allegedly assaulted a youth for not giving way for the car of the legislator at nearby Anchal, police said.
The alleged incident happened when Kumar, son of party chief R Balakrishna Pillai, was proceeding to meet a bereaved family and the 'victim' returning after visiting them.
He filed a complaint with police against the MLA and his driver.
In a counter police complaint, a staff of the MLA alleged the youth assaulted the driver, police said.
Ananthakrishnan and his mother were returning in a car after visiting the same family that Kumar was going to call on when the two vehicles came in the opposite direction on a road leading to the house of the deceased.
According to the complaint, the MLA, an actor-turned politician, got of his car and allegedly assaulted the youth as his vehicle could not move forward.
