The minister is accused of beating an advocate of the district court at the former’s residence on March 12. The victim,Rajendra Prashad Kesari,had moved an application before the CJM and had requested him to order an FIR since police of Mutthigang police station were not lodging his complaint allegedly under the minister’s pressure.
