Mumbai: In a major embarrassment for the local BJP unit, one of its corporators in the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) was arrested on Monday evening allegedly for outraging the modesty of his neighbour on the penultimate day of the recently concluded Navratri festivities at their housing complex in Mira Road.

The wife and daughter of the accused corporator, identified as Daulat Gajre, have also been named as accused in the crime. The action followed legislator Pratap Sarnaik, along with local Shiv Sena leaders, thron-ging the police station on Sunday night, demanding immediate action against the corporator and his family.

The complainant (19), daughter of a deceased police personnel, and her younger brother have be-en staying with their ad-optive family after the de-mise of their parents. Ac-ting on the complaint, the Kashimira police booked Gajre, his wife Kamal, and daughter Akanksha.

A heated verbal exch-ange over playing music on the loudspeaker took an ugly turn when Kamal and Akanksha allegedly mounted an assault on the complainant in the presence of Mr Gajre, who, instigated his kin instead of preventing them.
