SPAT WITH IPS OF­FI­CER

BJP MLA from Go­rakh­pur Sadar, Radha Mo­han Das Agar­wal, on Thurs­day met Chief Min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath in Luc­know, where he al­legedly in­formed the CM about his side of the story re­gard­ing him al­legedly mis­be­hav­ing with IPS of­fi­cer Charu Nigam.

In a video that had gone vi­ral on so­cial me­dia, Agar­wal was seen ar­gu­ing with Nigam in Chilu­atal area on Sun­day. Nigam, who was seen wip­ing her eyes, later said she had turned emo­tional when her se­niors sup­ported her in the mat­ter.

Later, the MLA had claimed that he did not mis­be­have with Nigam and that she had al­legedly lath­icharged women protest­ing against liquor shops in the area. He also al­leged that she had as­saulted a preg­nant woman. The MLA and the of­fi­cer had given their ver­sion of the events on so­cial me­dia.

Af­ter meet­ing Adityanath, Agrawal said he told CM about the en­tire in­ci­dent and raised ob­jec­tion that Nigam was post­ing mes­sages on the is­sue on so­cial me­dia.

“That chap­ter is closed. The liquor shop against which women were protest­ing has been shut down. Also, I have not de­manded ac­tion against any of­fi­cer,” he added.

He said that he has handed over to the CM 56 mem­o­ran­dums against unau­tho­rised liquor shops, which he had re­ceived from res­i­den­tial so­ci­eties in Go­rakh­pur on Tues­day. He has re­quested Adityanath to get the mem­o­ran­dum ex­am­ined so that nec­es­sary ac­tion could be taken, he added.

Radha Mo­han Das Agar­wal handed 56 mem­o­randa to the CM.
