district went viral on social media.

The incident at Devadar railway overbridge toll booth on the Thiroor-Thannor road came to light after CCTV footage connected with it went viral.

The footage showed MLA V Abdurahiman, representing Thanoor segment, coming out of the car and pushing a toll booth staff after they stopped his vehicle at the gate.

The MLA, however, said he had not roughed up the staff member and only questioned him after he spoke 'improperly'. Aburahiman said there were a lot of complaints against the toll booth staff about their misbehaviour with travellers.

"The toll booth is very near my office.I used to pass through the gates every day several times. I only asked them don't you know me'? he added.
