Kota (Raj):

BJP MLA Chandrakanta Meghwal on Thursday approached a court here seeking anticipatory bail in an assault case, days after she was asked to appear before police for questioning.

She urged the commissioner to ensure free and impartial elections.

Police had served a notice on her twice this week, asking the MLA to appear for questioning in the five-year-old case.

Accepting her bail plea, the court directed police to produce the case dairy and decided to hear the matter on Friday.
