Ruling BJP MLA Yogendra Nirmal termed the over two-month delay in arresting policemen accused of trying to murder RSS pracharak Suresh Yadav in police custody in MP’s Balaghat district on September 25, an insult to every Sangh worker.

The first-time MLA from Waraseoni seat of Balaghat district had sought a call attention motion on the issue during the state assembly’s winter session on December 6.

“I had moved the call attention motion, but that didn’t happen. The motion had the support of three other MLAs of BJP,” he said. Through the motion the BJP MLA had sought to know why the nine cops and home guards accused of attempt to murder RSS pracharak in Baihar town of Balaghat were not arrested.

Nirmal claimed that the SIT probe set up into the case was a hogwash aimed to ensure that once the incident became 90 days old, the cops, get bail.

“If the accused are not arrested then we’ll meet the DGP and also top RSS functionaries of Madhya Pradesh to chalk out a strategy on the issue,” added Nirmal.

RSS pracharak Suresh Yadav was allegedly beaten in custody by cops of Balaghat police in Baihar town on September 25 for allegedly uploading of an objectionable religious post on social media.
