Union Home Minister, Amit Shah has sought a report after Madhya Pradesh BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya was arrested for thrashing a municipal official in Indore with a cricket bat.

Sources said that the BJP chief wanted to know the exact sequence of events that transpired on June 26 leading to the arrest of the son of senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya, adding the party will take a call on what to do with the first-time MLA after “studying all the facts of the case”. The incident is hurting the party’s image, they said.

The Indore police had arrested senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya’s son Akash Vijayvargiya for attacking a Municipal Corporation official with a cricket bat in the city on Wednesday.

A First Information Report (FIR) had been registered against Akash and 10 others at MG Road police station in Indore under IPC 353, 294, 506, 147, 148, for assaulting and obstructing a public servant from performing his duties. Police have also recorded the statements of two civic body officials.

The BJP MLA was recorded thrashing a civic body official using a cricket bat who was in the Ganji Compound area to carry out an anti-encroachment drive. Akash along with his supporters chased the official. The incident took place in full public view including the presence of policemen and television crews.

Akash Vijayvargiya has been sent to jail till July 7 after his bail plea was denied. The arrest of the BJP MLA has let to national outrage. Posters supporting Akash Vijayvargiya appeared in parts of Indore which read, “Salute Akash ji”.

The posters were, however, later taken down by the Indore Municipal Corporation.

Moreover, BJP is also planning to hold a demonstration rally on Friday against the arrest of Akash Vijayvargiya in Indore.

After the incident, Akash had clarified, “I told them (the officials) to leave in 10 minutes and said we couldn’t tolerate it any longer. I am an elected representative. It is my responsibility to sort out the issues between the residents and the authorities. I was making every effort. But the civic body officials were indulging in dadagiri and weren’t listening to the people.”

He further added that civic body officers who went to the residential building during the anti-encroachment drive were not accompanied by any female officers. Alleging that officers dragged the women residents and verbally abused one of them, the BJP MLA added, “I was very angry. I don’t remember what all I did. Let’s see what happens.”

He had also alleged that Congress leader Sajjan Singh Verma had sent some anti-social elements to capture the building and the Municipal Corporation workers were helping the Congress leader in grabbing the building.
