Kanpur: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Unnao Sakshi Maharaj, has now been booked for threatening to shoot the police.
A case in this regard has been filed at Bicchwa police station in Mainpuri district against Sakshi, who has courted several controversies in the recent past.
The police registered an FIR against the BJP MP, following a complaint by the SHO of Bicchwa, Jitendra Kumar.
The FIR has been registered against Sakshi under 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot—if rioting be committed—if not committed), 505 (1) (b) (intent to cause, or which is likely to cause, fear or alarm to the public, or to any section of the public whereby any person may be induced to commit an offence against the state or against the public tranquility) and 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) of IPC (Indian Penal Code).
This complaint follows the speech that Sakshi Maharaj made at a BJP worker Maidan Singh’s house in Fardpur village of the district on May 3. In his speech he had allegedly threatened that, “the police would have to face bullet, if it conducts any further raid at Maidan Singh’s house”.
The Bicchwa police had conducted a raid at the house of BJP worker Maidan Singh in connection with alleged spurious liquor trade flourishing at his house.
At that time too the Unnao MP had alleged that the local policemen misbehaved with Maidan Singh’s two daughters and entered his house without lady constables.
