Mainpuri: An FIR was lodged on Saturday against two local BSP leaders for allegedly threatening an executive engineer with dire consequences if he did not disburse money for a road construction project being handled by the daughter of one of them.

The FIR was lodged on the basis of a complaint by PWD executive engineer M R Baraya, alleging that local BSP leaders Kamlesh Kumari and S P Rana with their supporters barged into his house last night and threatened him and his family with dire consequences if he continued to withhold payment for the construction of a road whose contract had been given to Kumari's daughter.

Baraya, an engineer in the provincial division here, said that Kamlesh Kumari's daughter had taken the contract for the construction of the 2-km Mainpuri-Faradpur road in 2008 but he had stopped payment for it because of sub-standard material being used in its construction.

The two BSP leaders, however, denied the engineer's allegation saying the FIRs lodged against them were fake.
