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.
