National Security Act (NSA) was on Thursday imposed on Samajwadi Party leader Mukesh Choudhary for allegedly attacking a Dalit district welfare officer here recently, police said.

Choudhary, along with nine others, was arrested last month for attacking and seriously injuring district welfare officer Rinku Singh, Circle Officer Alok Priyadarshni said.

It was alleged that Singh was shot at by Choudhary, who is the proprietor of several schools, for ordering an inquiry into alleged corruption dealings in the department.

Choudhary has contested 2002 Assembly election from Baghra on an SP ticket.
