Dehradun: Close on the heels of the alleged assault on a ruling BJP MLA in Uttarakhand, a Municipal Councillor was arrested today on the charge of thrashing a policeman in Mussoorie.

Rajwant Rawat, a nominated member, was arrested after he allegedly beat up a constable last night, police said.

Rawat, who was hit by a moving car in Springroad area, reportedly asked the policeman on duty to catch the erring driver.

When the policeman did not respond, he flew into rage and allegedly thrashed the cop.

A case was registered against Rawat who was later arrested, police said.

Two days ago, eight police personnel were suspended, three of them were arrested and sent to jail, for allegedly beating up a ruling BJP MLA.
