Digvijay Singh condemns assault on advocate
Bhopal: Congress general secretary, Digvijay Singh on Sunday strongly condemned the incident of an advocate allegedly being thrashed by district administration officials in Datia town on August 7.
Advocate Mohar Singh of Datia town was allegedly thrashed badly by the collector and superintendent of police (SP) in Datia town around midnight after forcibly entering his house on August 7, the Congress general secretary said in a statement here today.
Singh also alleged that officials took him to the police station as if he was a criminal and kept him in the police station for the whole night where he was severely beaten.
He said that a delegation of the State Bar Council along with former council head, Rameshwar Neekhra met the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan along with proof of severe wounds affected by Mohar Singh in this regard, but no action was taken.
Singh said that he had also spoken to Chouhan yesterday on the issue and reminded him about the incident.
The Congress leader demanded that Chouhan take strict action against those guilty in the case.
Efforts to contact the state cabinet spokesman on the issue proved futile.
