The demonstrators have been booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
Meanwhile, the BJP women’s wing has filed a counter FIR against the staff of the power board charging them of deliberate harassment.
On Monday morning, BJP officials along with the ex-MP of Hazaribagh held a dharna outside the electricity board offices.
It soon turned violent when the protestors realized that the manager was not in his office. When he arrived at 2 pm, they locked his office and allegedly tied him to his chair.
The police rushed to calm the situation and soon arrested Sinha along with 51 other workers.
They have been lodged at Jai Prakash Naryan Central jail in Hazaribagh.
