Tiwari said the incident looked like a big conspiracy, that too with police involvement. No one should be spared, he added.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Crime Madhur Verma assured that all the angles related to the case would be investigated.

"As per the statement given by Manoj Tiwari's staff Ashok Pathak, an FIR under Section 452, 323, 506 and 34 has been lodged. Upon investigation, accused Jaykumar and his brother Jaswant, who live in North Avenue, have been apprehended and will be arrested soon," Verma told the media here.

Verma further informed that the scuffle started with a verbal argument but escalated to a violent level due to which even the staff of the BJP MLA was not spared.

The accused ransacked the entire house and even the cars were vandalized.
