BJP legislator Akash Vijayvargiya, who was arrested on Wednesday for thrashing a municipal official with a cricket bat, got bail from a special court in Bhopal today. He had earlier been sent to jail till July 7. He will be released tomorrow.
The official, who was beaten up, was part of a team that was on an anti-encroachment drive in Indore when they were approached by Akash Vijayvargiya and his supporters. “You should leave within five minutes or else whatever happens after that will be your responsibility,” Mr Vijayvargiya told the officers.
Talking to media persons, Vijayvargiya’s counsel Bhargava said: “Justice has won 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.
On Wednesday, the young politician and his supporters were seen chasing a civic body official with a cricket bat in the presence of policemen and television crews. A video emerged of the dramatic scenes and was shared widely on social media.

The official, who was beaten up, was part of a team that was on an anti-encroachment drive in Indore when they were approached by Akash Vijayvargiya and his supporters. “You should leave within five minutes or else whatever happens after that will be your responsibility,” Mr Vijayvargiya told the officers.
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.
