An FIR was registered against Manoj Kumar Dwivedi,the lawyer of BSP MLA and former minister Ramveer Upadhyay,on Monday at Vibhuti Khand police station for intimidating A K Singhal,PRO of Lokayukta N K Mehrotra.
According to Singhals complaint,Dwivedi had come to his office today afternoon seeking the copy of Lokayuktas report sent to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday,in which the Lokayuka had recommended a CBI or vigilance probe against Upadhyay for possessing assets disproportionate to his known source of income.
Singhal said when he declined to give him the report Dwivedi started arguing with him saying when it can be given to press why it cannot be given to him. Later,Dwivedi threatened of getting the office attacked by supporters and created a ruckus,Singhal alleged.
Later,Singhal complained (verbally) to Lucknow Deputy Inspector General Ashutosh Pandey and security was tightened at the Lokayukta office. Singhal also gave a written complaint at the police station for lodging an FIR.
