The three clips sur­faced on Tues­day – au­then­tic­ity of which could not be ver­i­fied – re­port­edly show the 24-year-old Pati­dar quota crusader with a woman in a room. They are ac­com­pa­nied by two other men, al­legedly co-con­ven­ers of Pati­dar Ana­mat Aan­dolan Samiti (PAAS).

In the clips, recorded through a hid­den cam­era and dated May 22, all three men have their heads ton­sured.

The al­leged get-to­gether hap­pened a day af­ter Nyay Ya­tra in Bo­tad when PAAS mem­bers ton­sured their heads in protest ahead of the visit of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi. On Mon­day, a video al­legedly show­ing Pa­tel (head not ton­sured) with an­other woman in a dif­fer­ent room had sur­faced. HTC
