Councillor Manish Chaudhary's supporters tried to free him from police custody.
Meerut (UP): A BJP councillor was arrested for allegedly thrashing a police sub-inspector in the district’s Kankar Khera area, police said Saturday.
According to a senior police officer, councillor Manish Chaudhary’s supporters tried to free him from police custody when he was being taken to a police station. They also created ruckus at the police station, the officer said.
Mohiuddinpur police outpost in charge Sukhpal Singh and his female friend, an advocate, had Friday evening gone to a restaurant, owned by Chaudhary, where the incident occurred, he said.
Circle Officer at Daurala Pankaj Kumar Singh said the trigger for the incident was the woman expressing displeasure over not getting their order on time. She allegedly threw away the food when it was finally served.
Chaudhary protested against her action which led to an altercation among the three.
The circle officer said Chaudhary allegedly thrashed Singh and pushed the woman advocate.
