A Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) leader was allegedly dragged, confined and beaten up at Lashkar in Gwalior.

According to police, Sanjay Trivedi (42), was walking towards his house when he was assaulted by one Dharmendra Sharma and the latter's friends. They dragged him towards Sharma's house where they beat him up and confined him in a bathroom in the house.

Later, when the complainant managed to escape, he went to a police station and lodged an FIR against Sharma and his companions. Trivedi is the head of RSS intellectual cell of Gwalior.

Police sources said the accused, Dharmendra Sharma, often intercepted Trivedi's teenaged daughter. The girl goes to a coaching institute and Sharma allegedly harassed her every day and passed comments. As a result, Trivedi's family objected to it. The family had complained to the police but no FIR had been registered then. When Sharma came to know that Trivedi had approached the police, he was miffed.

"Sharma and his companions have been booked for assault. Also, a case has been registered against Sharma for harassing the complainant's daughter," said Town Inspector (TI), Rajkumar Sharma. The police have begun investigation in the case.
