Four BJP workers were arrested after angry party workers attempted to set a restaurant on fire, police said today. The ‘dhaba’ owner Om Jaat and his staff had allegedly beaten up local BJP leader and former legislator Shiva Kotwani on March 2 over an argument. Police had arrested Jaat and his friends in this connection.

However, party workers ‘gheraoed’ the police station yesterday and demanded that the accused be handed over to them. As their demand was not fulfilled, BJP workers reached the ‘dhaba’ and spread petrol around its premises in an attempt to set the restaurant on fire.
