DHAR: BJP MLA from Dharmpuri constituency in the district, Kallusingh Thakur escaped unhurt after he was allegedly shot at by four men under the Mandu police station limits, a police official said here today.

The accused attacked the MLA when he was talking to people at the veranda of his house last night, police said.

Accused Vishnu, Nankiya, Ravi and Vishambhar have been nabbed and are being interrogated after the MLA's personal assistant Shashikant Chauhan lodged a complaint, Mandu Town Inspector Anirudh Wadia told PTI.

He said that the accused have been booked under Section 307 (attempt to murder) and Section 34 (act done by several persons in furtherance of a common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

After the attack on him, MLA Thakur alleged that the accused were criminals hired by a person to kill him.

However, District Superintendent of Police Rajesh Hingankar said that initial investigations into the incident indicate that the attack is the fallout of a property dispute.
