LUCKNOW: An FIR has been registered at the Tarbaganj Police Station against Karan Bhushan Singh, the BJP candidate from Kaiserbagh and son of the prominent politician Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, for allegedly breaching the Model Code of Conduct. The accusation extends to some unidentified individuals implicated in the case against Karan Bhushan.
SHO Tarabganj, Sumit Kumar, stated in his FIR that the convoy led by Karan Bhushan Singh, without permission, was flouting the norms of the Model Code of Conduct and disregarding the prohibition orders.Supporters accompanying Karan Bhushan Singh’s convoy at Belsar Market indulged in fireworks on Saturday.
Karan Bhushan Singh was conducting a rally without permission, causing chaos and disruption, as reported by various social and print media outlets.
Following an investigation and under the directive of the District Magistrate, the FIR has been registered. District Election Officer Neha Sharma has taken serious note of the violations of the Code of Conduct and the unauthorized procession.
SHO Kumar mentioned that the FIR was lodged under sections of IPC 188 (violation of prohibitory orders) and 171 H (Illegal payments in connection with an election) against Karan and unidentified individuals.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had nominated Karan Bhushan Singh, the son of former Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, as its candidate for the Kaiserganj seat in Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in May. This decision was made as Brij Bhushan Singh, who has represented Kaiserganj three times in the past, has been omitted from the party’s ticket this time.
The exclusion of Brij Bhushan Singh follows allegations of sexual harassment leveled against him, particularly by female wrestlers, prompting widespread protests, including those by prominent athletes like Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia, and Vinesh Phogat. Kaiserganj will go to polls on May 20 in the fifth phase.
