The Jammu and Kashmir Police has arrested from Rajasthan the brother of former BJP minister Lal Singh who had been on the run since the registration of a case against him for allegedly abusing Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti during a public rally.
The officials said that Rajinder Singh alias Bobby was arrested from Udaipur, where he was hiding. He is being brought to Jammu.
A video, circulated on social media, purportedly showed him hurling abuses at the chief minister during the Dogra Swabiman Rally in Hiranagar last month.
