Jalna, Maharashtra: A police sub-inspector has lodged a complaint against BJP MLA Narayan Kuche, accusing the legislator of abusing and threatening him over the phone during investigation of a case, the police said on Tuesday.

The complaint has been filed by sub-inspector Ashok Avchare, of the Ambad police station in Maharashtra's Jalna district.

Avchare was heading the investigation into the disappearance of one Bhausaheb Kisan Rathod, who went missing on June 7. A missing complaint was lodged with the Ambad police station.

During the investigation, Avchare came to know that Rathod had borrowed Rs 3 lakh from an agent of a sugar factory and was not repaying the amount, police said.

Later, the agent reportedly asked Suresh Chavan, a support of Kuche, to recover the money from Rathod. Chavan had been allegedly harassing Rathod over the pending amount, they said.

Avachare called Chavan for inquiry and told him he will register a complaint against him in connection with the disappearance of Rathod, police said.

Chavan reportedly called Kuche and told him about the likely police action. Kuche then called Avachare and allegedly threatened and abused him for trying to "implicate" Chavan in the case, they said.

Avachare also made an entry in the police dairy regarding the incident. He on Monday submitted a written complaint against the MLA from Badnapur constituency in the district to in-charge of the Ambad police station.

Additional Superintendent of Police Lata Phad confirmed the filing of complaint against the legislator.

Phad did not provide further details, saying she was still looking into the matter. Kuche was not available for comment.
