BJP corporator arrested for assaulting police officer

Lucknow: A Bharatiya Janata Party corporator in Meerut was arrested on Saturday for assaulting a uniformed sub-inspector at a restaurant that the former owns, police said.

BJP leader had been booked under non-bailable offences

On Friday, the sub-inspector had gone to a restaurant — Black Pepper — with a woman lawyer. There, he allegedly got into a tiff with a waiter after which Corporator Manish Chowdhary attacked him and was caught on a video slapping the police officer thrice.

He was also abusing the duo even as the woman lawyer threw crockery at the restaurant staff, mouthing obscenities.

Meerut City Superintendent of Police R Singh said that the BJP leader had been booked under non-bailable offences. BJP workers created a ruckus soon after the corporator was arrested and tried to prevent the police from discharging their duties.

Chowdhary has also lodged a complaint, alleging that Sub-Inspector Sukhpal Singh came to his restaurant drunk, vandalized property and attacked his staff.
