LUCKNOW: A notice has been issued to Rashtriya Lok Dal leader Jayant Chowdhury, son of Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh, for allegedly violating the model code of conduct at an election meeting in Mathura.

"We have sent a notice to Chowdhury seeking his explanation. He was caught on camera accepting money at Govardhan Assembly constituency in Mogarra area here," ADM (City) Ram Awatar Raman told PTI.

Chowdhury was yesterday caught on camera while he was accepting money (about Rs 70,000) during an election meeting in Mathura.

He then passed the cash to his party candidate, who returned the money to him. Chowdhury later passed the cash on to his brother-in-law, who was accompanying him on the campaign trail.

The Assembly constituencies that fall under Mathura will go to vote on February 28.

Chowdhury, sitting MP from Mathura, is also contesting Assembly polls from Maant seat.
