Congress workers staged a protest in Madhya Pradesh's Shivpuri after few of them were allegedly injured in police lathicharge. The workers claimed that they were beaten for complaining against a BJP MLA who allegedly tried to bribe voters ahead of by-polls. They alleged that "instead of seizing the vehicle, police allowed MLA to escape." The police claimed that they were checking the MLA's vehicle when stone pelting was started from Congress workers' side. Police refuted from allegations of lathicharge.
