An FIR has been filed against a Samajwadi Party MLA and five others for allegedly keeping a man in captivity and torturing him in Jhansi district, police said in Lucknow today.
According to the FIR filed yesterday by Mukesh Kumar Yadav at Nawabad police station here, in July last year he sold his car at Rs 10.75 lakh to sister-in-law of SP MLA from Garautha constituency Deep Narain Singh Yadav. However, she did not pay the amount at that time.
On Thursday, when Mukesh went to her to demand the money, the MLA along with his five aides allegedly locked him in a room and tortured him, police said.
Yadav is the second SP MLA to face an FIR in the last few days.
Earlier, a murder case was lodged against MLA Sripat Azad from Sadar constituency in Maharajganj district for setting a 36-year-old woman on fire.
The MLA, who was on the run for nearly 10 days, finally surrendered before a local court on March 25.
