He has been booked under Section 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to government servant) and Section 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal code.
He is identified as a ‘whistleblower’ after he exposed alleged irregularities in government recruitment exams. His complaints about the irregularities have already led to cancellation of two exams for recruitment of clerks in the last few months.
He has claimed that the question paper of an exam for recruitment of forest guards was also leaked.
Inspector General (Gandhinagar Range) Abhay Chudasama stated that Mr Jadeja came to the Gandhinagar police headquarters on Tuesday evening to extend his support to job aspirants (for post of assistant school teachers or “Vidyasahayaks”) who were detained by police and taken to the HQ as they did not have permission for their protest.
“After some heated arguments, Mr Jadeja attacked some on-duty policemen and ran towards his car after more cops gathered at the spot. He then sat in his car and tried to flee the spot. He did not stop his car when a constable signalled him to do so,” he added.
