Samajwadi Party lawmaker Ramesh Yadav's nephew Mohit Yadav was caught on camera slapping a police officer inside a police station.

He had allegedly assaulted staff at a hospital earlier.

The young man announced his name with much swagger, before striking the cop who had hauled him to the police station, also shouting abuses and threats at other police officers.

He seemed to expect better treatment because he is the nephew of the Samajwadi Party lawmaker of the area in Etah, western Uttar Pradesh.

The attack was caught on camera. "Mohit Yadav is my name and this man...," said the 24-year-old in Hindi, before slapping sub-inspector Jitendra Kumar hard.

As police officers rushed to control him, he also grabbed the collar of one of them.

Yadav has been arrested and charged with assault and obstructing an official from duty.
