A police officer who is familiar with the incident said that the vehicle was stopped near Modi Chauraha in Gursarai area during a routine checking drive.

While speaking to Hindustan Times, Cop told:

“As the number plate of Rahul’s car did not have a registration number, a police officer (a station house officer) asked him to show the papers at which Rahul got furious. He repeatedly said he was an MLA’s son and such an act would cost the police heavily.”

“When the officer did not relent, Rahul slapped him. Rahul was taken into custody and was brought to the police station”

When MLA came to know about the incident, he along with his supporters went to the police station and alleged that cop has beaten his son and harassed him. MLA Jawahar Rajput also demanded strict action against the cops who troubled his son.
