The Uttarakhand Police have registered a case against Munna Singh Chauhan,the BLP legislator from Vikasnagar,for allegedly abusing and threatening an assistant engineer of the Irrigation Department and later hitting him with a shoe. Chauhan has however denied these allegations.
Complainant Vijendra Kumar claimed he was attacked by Chauhan and his supporters when he had gone to attend a departmental meeting at Dak Pathar guesthouse on Thursday evening. He claimed the MLA abused him and hit him with a shoe.
Chauhan,on the other hand,says he did pull up the assistant engineer,but never assaulted or abused him. I had been getting regular complaints pertaining to an irrigation project near Telwala… When I pulled him up again,his superintending engineer rushed to the spot and promised to look into the matter, the MLA added.
