On Tuesday evening, at an event for the differently-abled held in Asansol, West Bengal, Union Minister Babul Supriyo threatened to break a man's legs and 'hand him a crutch'.

It seemed that the irony of the threat wasn't lost on Supriyo who was annoyed at the man for looking distracted.

The BJP politician was present at the event to distribute wheelchairs to people with disabilities.

On seeing a man fidgeting around, Supriyo scolded him, saying, 'what happened to you? any problem?'

He then asked his security team to break the man's leg and hand him a crutch if he moved again. He also asked the man to move away in a corner, before asking the audience to clap for him.

This isn't the first time Supriyo has threatened violence. In March, he told a bunch of protesters 'I will 'skin you alive.'
