Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal
The Rajendra Nagar police station in Indore apprehended Nana Patwari, the brother of Congress candidate from Rau and former minister and MLA Jitu Patwari. Nana had been on the run for five years, along with three of his associates. They had been evading authorities in connection with a case that stemmed from the farmers’ movement. After half a decade, the police finally arrested them, and they were subsequently brought before the court, which ordered their incarceration.

Nana faces attempt murder charges

Nana Patwari and his 3 associates had been fugitives since the time of the farmers’ movement. There was an outstanding warrant for their arrest, and with elections approaching, law enforcement took action to detain them and present them in court. Following the court’s orders, all four of them were sent to jail. Notably, Nana Patwari and his associates are facing charges of attempted murder.

Protests in 2017 led to clashes with police

The case was originally registered in 2017 when farmers had staged protests in Choithram Mandi to voice their demands. During this movement, a case was filed against Nana Patwari and his companions, Sachin, Ashok, and Jitendra. The protests had led to clashes with the police, and the police station was surrounded during the demonstrations. In subsequent court proceedings, none of the four accused individuals had appeared, leading to the issuance of permanent arrest warrants.
