A court of Muzaffarnagar has rejected the interim bail plea of a local BJP leader and three others and sent them to jail in connection with a two-year-old case registered under the SC/ST Act.
According to prosecution, the four accused, among them BJP leader Sudhir Saini, Wednesday surrendered in a court here dealing with cases under the SC/ST Act and submitted an interim bail application which, however, was rejected.
A case had been registered against several people, including Saini under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act at Badsu village in the Ratenpuri police station area two years back in connection with a clash between two groups.
Saini had contested the 2012 Assembly elections on a BJP ticket from Khatauli assembly constituency.
