Union Home Minister Amit Shah has sought a report after Indore MLA Akash Vijayvargiya, son of BJP national General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya was arrested Wednesday after he assaulted a civic official in full public view while opposing demolition of a house.
Akash was sent to judicial custody for a fortnight for the crime.
Meanwhile, the Municipal Corporation officer who was thrashed by Akash has been hospitalised after he complained of respiratory problem.
Troubles have mounted for the Indore MLA as he has been arrested in another case while still being in jail for the assault incident.
While he was lodged in district jail in Azad Nagar in Indore, a police team ‘officially’ arrested him for a protest on June 4 over power cuts.
Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s effigy was torched during the demonstration. The BJP MLA is accused of leading the protest without taking mandatory permissions.
Inspector Rajendra Chaturvedi of MG Road police station said Akash was arrested under IPC section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC.
After his arrest for assaulting a civic official, Indore sessions court Thursday rejected Vijayvargiya’s bail plea, saying he will have to approach the special court at Bhopal, set up to handle cases against legislators.
