ANI General News
BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya, who got bail in a case for allegedly thrashing a municipal officer with a cricket bat, will be released on Sunday morning, district jail authorities said.
"He will be released in the morning tomorrow. We have not received any official document in hard copy till now. His behaviour was normal and he followed all rules," Superintendent of district jail Indore, Aditi Chaturvedi, told ANI on Saturday.
Soon after Vijayvargiya got bail from a special court in Bhopal, his official Twitter handle wrote: "Satyameva Jayate ( Truth prevails)".
Earlier, the BJP MLA's counsel Pusyamitra Bhargava termed it as the victory of justice.
The special court judge Suresh Singh, while granting him bail, asked Vijayvargiya to produce two bonds of Rs 50,000 and Rs 20,000 and two sureties of the like amount.
Talking to media persons, Vijayvargiya's counsel Bhargava said: "Justice has prevailed today. The judge found our contentions right."
Akash Vijayvargiya, son of senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya, was arrested on June 26 for thrashing a municipal officer with a cricket bat in Indore.
The officer was in the area for an anti-encroachment drive. The legislator also slapped the officer three times before the police stopped him.
A few bystanders also held the officer by his collar and slapped him repeatedly while an unidentified man attempted to rip the officer's shirt apart.
Akash, while narrating the sequence of events that unfolded, had claimed that certain Congress legislators were getting buildings in Indore demolished in connivance with the Municipal Corporation without consulting him.
Despite repeated requests to wait for proper investigation, Akash claimed that the officers paid no heed to his pleas and sent "goons" to evict the people from the building that had to be demolished.
