Champion has also been slapped with a notice by the Haridwar District Magistrate, Dipendra Chaudhary.
In his clarification, Champion had defended himself by saying the guns were licensed and he was not pointing them at anyone.
After the video went viral on July 10, Uttarakhand state BJP president, Shyam Jaju, demanded Champion’s permanent suspension from the party. The MLA is already facing a three-month suspension for threatening a journalist.
“The party cannot compromise on any incident related with indiscipline,” Jaju said.
Champion was also found using abusive and foul language in the clip, while shaking a leg on a song from the famous Bollywood movie Karan Arjun.
Singh displayed four different guns while dancing and his supporters in the background praised the leader, saying, “No one else, only you can do something like this in Uttarakhand.”
While responding to his supporters, Pranav Singh said, “Not just in Uttarakhand, no one can do this in entire India.”
