Jaipur: Mahesh Nagar police on Tuesday arrested a Rajasthan University student leader, identified as Mukesh Choudhary and his aide Hansraj Choudhary for creating ruckus at a petrol pump last week. The duo and some other youths had mercilessly beaten up the employees of the petrol pump and then scared away customers by recklessly driving their SUV on the premises. The entire incident was caught on CCTV. The footages went viral on social media, causing the police to swing into action.

The petrol pump officials had earlier alleged that Mahesh Nagar police let off Mukesh Choudhary despite the fact that his supporters were caught on CCTV creating ruckus at the petrol pump. Mukesh had himself gone to the police station immediately after the incident but he was allowed to leave without any action, they alleged.

“We have arrested Mukesh and his aide Hansraj. Further investigation is going on,” said a police officer.

The incident took place on Friday, but it came to light on Sunday after the video went viral. Mukesh Choudhary and his supporters allegedly created ruckus over fuel payment. After a heated argument with the petrol pump employees, Choudhary and his supporters started beating them up. They also ransacked the petrol pump properties.

Both the parties – the petrol pump employees and the student leader – have registered complaints with Mahesh Nagar police. Choudhary and some of his supporters were taken into custody for interrogation.
