Lucknow, March 13 (IANS) Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislator Manju Singh and her two minor sons were charged with manhandling and kidnapping after her henchmen intervened in a scuffle between school children in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia district, the police said Friday.
The brawl between the legislator’s sons, Sonu and Monu, and a nine-year-old class four student in a school bus turned ugly when Singh’s henchmen intervened in the fight.
“Sonu and Monu had a fight with a class four student and after that Manju Singh’s followers intercepted the bus,” Inspector Baccha Paswan told IANS over phone.
Abhay Singh, the father of the nine-year-old, reached the spot but was thrashed by the legislator’s followers.
“Abhay singh was locked inside a room. A case of manhandling and kidnapping has been registered against Manju Singh, her sons and unknown people,” Paswan added.
No arrests have been made so far, he added.
