Lucknow: A former BSP MLA, who was wanted in connection with a number of cases, including attempt to murder and loot, was on Tuesday arrested from the airport area here, police said.

Jitendra Singh Babloo, who had recently joined the Peace Party after being expelled from the BSP and disqualified from Assembly membership, was arrested at Amausi airport area, they said.

The cases against Babloo were lodged by businessman Mahesh Srivastav, who had alleged that the then legislator was trying to grab his office at Saushil Complex in Hazratganj area, police said.

Babloo along with his associates had allegedly tried to kill Srivastava, who had lodged an FIR against him for looting his office.

Babloo was in the news in a case related to arson in the house of Congress state president Rita Bahuguna Joshi in July 2009 after which he was awarded the status of Minister of State.
