A case of loot, dacoity and attempt to murder has been filed against Louis Khurshid, wife of External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, by an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member in Uttar Pradesh, police said Thursday.

Vivek Yadav, the district president of AAP, lodged the police complaint in Mainpuri district.

Yadav alleged that when Khursheed, a Congress leader, came to Mainpuri town Wednesday to inaugurate an eye check-up camp and they were showing her black flags, her car tried to run over him and his colleague.

The case has been filed against 10 other Congress workers and supporters.

A counter first information report was filed against Yadav by district Congress president Prakash Pradhan, said Rakesh Singh, public relations officer of the state director general of police.

Yadav, however, alleged that not only did Khurshid's car tried to run over him and his colleague Sunil Mishra but also that Pradhan whipped out his revolver and aimed at him.

Senior Superintendent of Police Shalabh Mathur told IANS that the case was registered Wednesday night and a follow-up action was being taken.

"We have sought the video recording of the event where the alleged happenings took place. Appropriate action will be taken after studying the recording," he said.
