An FIR has been lodged against sitting Samajwadi Party MLA Radhey Shyam Jaiswal and others for allegedly demolishing the boundary wall of the Reserve Police Lines in Sitapur on Friday morning.
The police said locals reached the police lines on Friday and started demolishing the boundary wall of the police lines. The police team, after coming to know about the development, rushed to the site. Locals, who numbered 250, escaped from the spot. The police said they took around 15 minutes to reach the site and till that time locals managed to demolish a portion of the eight feet high boundary wall.
Reserve Inspector at the Police Lines Sudhir Sharma later lodged a named FIR against Jaiswal, nine other persons persons and 250 unidentified persons at the Kotwali police station under various sections of the IPC.
The police said a preliminary inquiry has found that Jaiswal was not present at the spot at the time of the incident. "The investigation is on," said Circle Officer, Sitapur, Anurag Singh.
Jaiswal has won the Assembly election on Samajwadi Party ticket from Sitapur constituency.
According to the police, locals have been demanding to demolish the boundary wall of the police Lines ever since it was built in January this year. The locals claimed they had to take a long route to reach the nearby Gwal Mandi locality due to the boundary wall. Earlier, locals used to pass through the police lines to reach the locality.
"Although there is a gate for passage of pedestrians, locals want to bring down the boundary wall so that their vehicles could also pass," said a police officer.
