Bhopal: A minority cell leader of BJP has been booked under the stringent National Security Act in view of his "criminal record", days after he was charged with slaughtering a cow at his house in Dewas district, leading to his expulsion from the party.

"The National Security Act was slapped on Anwar Mev on January 28 in view of his past criminal record," Dewas District Collector Ashutosh Awasthi said on Sunday night. BJP's state unit spokesman Hitesh Bajpai confirmed the development, saying "we have expelled Mev from the party".

Mev, former vice president of the BJP's minority cell in Tonkkhurd Mandal in Dewas district, and nine others are facing a criminal case under the Madhya Pradesh Cow Slaughter Ban Act and the Indian Penal Code, according to Dewas additional superintendent of police Rajesh Raghuvanshi.

Meanwhile, the Congress has accused BJP of "dividing" society on communal lines in the name of cow. "According to reports, the BJP men, some of them Hindus, are involved in slaughter of cows. BJP is diving society in the name of cow. The export of beef has increased manifold under the NDA government," said Congress leader Bhupendra Gupta.

When contacted, BJP leader Shailesh Kesarwani said, "The (district) administration must have imposed NSA after seeing Anwar's record. Cow slaughter won't be tolerated at all."

Carcass of a cow was allegedly recovered from Mev's house in Maniyarpura locality in Tonkkhurd Nagar town on January 27, leading to protests by right-wing organisations. Mev was arrested and shifted to Ujjain Central Jail.
