Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh BJP has expelled Anwar Mev, former vice president of its minority cell in Tonkkhurd Mandal in Dewas district, days after he was charged with slaughtering a cow at his house and arrested.
“We have expelled Mev from the party,” state BJP spokesman Dr Hitesh Bajpai said.
Mev and nine others are facing a criminal case under the Madhya Pradesh Cow Slaughter Ban Act and the IPC, according to Dewas additional superintendent of police Rajesh Raghuvanshi.
Tension had prevailed in Tonkkhurd Nagar town after carcass of a cow was recovered from Mev’s house in Maniyarpura locality on November 27, leading to protests by right-wing organisations.
The district administration has also invoked the National Security Act (NSA) against Mev and shifted him to Ujjain central jail.
