On Wednesday, 5th of July, the administration took another major action against the accused Pravesh Shukla, who was earlier arrested for urinating on a tribal youth.
The administration has been acting swiftly after the state government assured that the accused would receive exemplary punishment in the case to set a deterrence.
The State officials in large numbers reached his village. Afterwards, the administration bulldozed his illegally constructed structure on encroached land in the Kubri region. Reportedly, the administration has demolished the encroached part of his house.
Accused Pravesh was earlier arrested at around 2 o’clock on the intervening night of the 4th and 5th of July. After the arrest, he was interrogated by the officials at the police station.
The DIG said that the video is 6 days old. However, after the video surfaced, there was widespread condemnation, calling for strict action for the perverted act atrocity.
Later, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra stated that bulldozer action would be taken against the accused if there is anything illegal. Subsequently, the encroached portion of his house was demolished by the administration.
n social media, the accused Pravesh is being claimed as a close supporter of local MLA Kedarnath Shukla, but the MLA himself has denied this.
Kedarnath Shukla said, “He (the culprit in the video) is neither my representative nor an associate. He is not connected to BJP in any way. I am demanding strict action against the culprit. When we visit our constituency, so many people click photos with us. But he is not attached to us in any way. He has shamed humanity and strict action should be taken against him.”
