INDORE: Three Congress workers were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly blackening the picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Mhow town in the district during the Bharat bandh called by the party on Monday.
Pappu Khan, Ankit Dholi and Saurabh Borasi, had allegedly blackened Modi’s image on a hoarding put up at a petrol pump in Mhow, police said. “These Congress workers were part of the protesters, who created a ruckus at a petrol pump in RCM area during the bandh,” said Additional Superintendent of Police Nagendra Singh. They climbed a ladder and blackened the picture of the prime minister on a hoarding at the petrol pump, Singh added.
“The protesters are accused of trying to damage the property of the petrol pump owner during their attempts to forcibly shut the establishment. They also tried to hurt the dignity of the constitutional post of the prime minister,” he said. At least five more persons are suspected to be involved in the act, he said adding that the police are trying to identify those accused by going through the CCTV footage.
