Patna --- Don-turned-MLA Anant Singh, known as Chhote Sarkar of Mokama, on Thursday embarrassed the "sushasan sarkar" of his JD (U) party in Bihar when he and his henchmen thrashed a TV reporter and his cameraman.
Prakash Singh and Habib Ali, who work for a private news channel, had gone to Singh's house seeking his reaction on the murder of a girl who had alleged sexual exploitation by him.
The MLA was later arrested. The two journalists were held hostage by Singh and beaten with rifle butts and lathis.
