Kailash Vijayvargiya's son attacks official with bat, denied bail

Indore: BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya's son - and the party's MLA in Madhya Pradesh - was on Wednesday arrested for attacking a civic body official with a cricket bat, after a heated argument over a demolition drive.

A local court rejected Akash Vijayvargiya's bail plea and he was sent to jail in the evening, an official said.

A video of the assault went viral on social media, after which police filed an FIR against Akash and 10 others in connection with the assault.

Akash went about beating up the officer even as media persons surrounded him with cameras and recorded the entire incident.

Justifying his action, Akash said, "In the BJP, we have been taught, pehle aavedan, phir nivedan aur phir danadan. (first request and then attack)."

Eye-witnesses said the locals were protesting against razing of a house when Akash, who was a part of the protest, warned the civic body staff of consequences if they do not leave the spot.

His supporters even removed the keys of the earth moving machine brought in to carry out the demolition, they said. Amid heated exchange, Akash brought out a cricket bat and started hitting an officer who was talking over his mobile phone. The MLA's supporters also attacked the officer and abused him while police personnel tried to bring the situation under control.
