Congress MLA, Kalpana Parulekar, was on Thursday arrested for allegedly doctoring photograph of state lokayukta PP Naolekar to show that he was a former RSS worker.
She was arrested from Mahidpur, her constituency in the Ujjain district, said IG CID, CV Muniraju.
The case was registered by the CID Bhopal after state parliamentary affairs minister Narottam Mishra raised the issue during the last assembly session.
The allegation against Parulekar is that to prove that the ruling BJP had favoured Naolekar, a former Supreme Court judge, in appointing the lokayukta, she produced a doctored photograph of Naolekar which showed him in RSS uniform.
For this, Naolekar's photograph was morphed with that of RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat.
The photograph was supplied to the assembly press room; it was also produced in the house during a no-confidence motion.
Leader of opposition in the assembly Ajay Singh, state Congress chief Kantilal Bhuria and Congress general secretary in-charge of the state, BK Hariprasad, termed the action "politically motivated".
