Karan Morwal, the son of Congress MLA Murli Morwal arrested by the Police in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore in connection with a case of allegedly submitting fake medical papers in different courts, an official said.
The police had announced a reward of Rs 5,000 for the arrest of the absconding accused, who is the son of Murli Morwal, an MLA from Badnagar in Ujjain district, the official said.
A woman leader had filed an FIR against Karan (33) and put an allegation on him that he had raped her on February 13, 2021, on the pretext of marrying her, M G Road police station in-charge DVS Nagar said.
However, while filing anticipatory bail applications in the matter in different courts, Karan had claimed that he was admitted to Badnagar’s civil hospital on the day of the alleged rape, he said.
During the probe, it was found that the claim was bogus, following which a separate FIR for cheating and other charges was registered against Karan in the matter, he said.
The Madhya Pradesh High Court’s Indore bench has already dismissed the accused’s anticipatory bail application in the case related to submitting fake documents for seeking bail on April 13.
