Nagpur: Dhantoli police have booked nine persons including President of Kamgar Kalyan Mandal and BJP Corporator, his wife, son, brother and five others, on the charges of abducting a 21-year old boy, detaining him with his hands and legs tied, abusing and beating him over a dispute. Booking of the BJP Corporator rattled the party and damage-control acts were immediately initiated.
The accused have been identified as Munna Yadav, BJP Corporator, his wife Laxmi Yadav, son Chintu Yadav, brother Baba Yadav and five other accused. It is learnt Laxmi Yadav is also a former Corporator.
According to reports, the complainant Rahul Madhukar Dudhbavre (21), resident of Chuna Bhatti, behind FCI Godown, Ajni, told police that he works in Visual Galaxy office situated in Central Excise Colony. On November 2, around 2 pm, he (Rahul) was standing near his office. At the same time, Munna Yadav’s son Chintu arrived there along with a friend. Pointing fingers towards Rahul, Chintu started abusing him.
However, it seemed that the matter would end there. But when one of Chintu’s friends approached Rahul, he asked reason for abusing him by Chintu and the two indulged in wordy duel. At about 3.30 pm, five youths on three motorcycles reached Rahul’s office and one of them told him that “Munna uncle is calling you.” However, when Rahul said that ‘coming after asking Madam’ the five youths forced Rahul to sit on their motorcycle and took him away.
According to Rahul’s complaint, he was taken to under-construction office of Munna Yadav near Ajni Square where Chintu Yadav and his accomplices were already present. All of them thrashed him severely. Munna Yadav’s wife Laxmi Yadav and brother Baba Yadav too helped the youths slyly. Later, hands and legs of Rahul were tied and a knife was thrust on one of his hands as if he was possessing it. Thereafter, Dhantoli police were informed about the incident who too reached the spot and took Rahul with them to Police Station.
