BJP legislator of Dharampuri, Kalu Singh Thakur, went missing while out for a morning walk on Wednesday morning. His wife lodged a complaint with the Mandav police station.

Confirming the development, deputy inspector general (rural) RP Singh said an investigation is going on and police are looking for a lead in the case.

A resident of Jamnia village in Dharampuri town, Thakur is a first-time BJP MLA.

After several unsuccessful attempts to contact Thakur, his family lodged a case with the Mandav police station. Thakur’s supporters have also launched a hunt to search the MLA.

“We have sent out three teams to look for Thakur. His call records have been retrieved and some people are being quizzed in this regard. However, we have not found any concrete lead in the case so far,” said Mandav police station in-charge Hare Singh Rawat talking to HT.

Police sources said Kalu Singh was opposed to the construction of Nagda-Gujari (two-lane) road spanning 75km.

A week ago, supporters of Kalu Singh, including his personal assistant Shashikant Chauhan and driver Mukut, allegedly damaged about a dozen trucks of the construction company at Dhamnod town and Sarai.

The company lodged a case against Chauhan and Mukut, following which police

arrested them.
