BALLIA (Uttar Pradesh): BJP leader Vinod Tiwari was arrested on Monday for allegedly misbehaving with the district magistrate and trying to manhandle a revenue officer here.

"Over 12 criminal cases are registered against Tiwari. There is a case of financial irregularity when he was the head of a village. We are investigating these cases," District Magistrate Bhawani Singh Khangarot told reporters.

Tiwari was called by Khangarot to his residence in connection the cases pending against him and to be briefed about restrictions on him in view of the Model Code of Conduct.

The district magistrate said Tiwari misbehaved with him after he was denied permission to sit on a chair since he was an accused.

"He was not allowed to sit since he is an accused. He also tried to convince me that he is innocent. He has a criminal record of ten years. I do not know which party he belongs to," Khangarot said.

"The police was informed and they arrested Tiwari. He misbehaved with me and tried to manhandle a tehsildar. He also told me that he was in jail for two months and that I did not know what Ballia leaders are," he added.
