A member of India's ruling Bharatiya Janaya Party was arrested on Saturday, days after he was beaten by a group of men for carrying beef.

BJP's Nagpur rural unit chief, Rajiv Potdar, said Salim was dismissed from the party as soon as police told them about the results of the forensic test on the meat seized from the victim.

Shah, was aggressively beaten by "Gaurakshaks" on Wednesday with allegations of carrying beef.

After the reports were realised, he was presented in the court where he was granted a bail.

Police will initiate further action against Shaha in accordance with the law, he said. He is likely to be arrested once he is discharged from the hospital, where he is now recuperating from the numerous injuries he received on his face and neck after being attacked by four-five men. A video of him being kicked and punched and dragged on the road had been widely circulated on social media. However, the BJP worker had claimed he was carrying mutton. After the beating up incident, samples of the meat that Shaha was carrying were sent for forensic analysis. "Stern action should be taken against him according to the law, but people must not resort to violence in such cases", he said.

However, the BJP had sought to play it down, calling it a "stray" incident. "We condemn this incident, but one can not term it a failure of law and order machinery because this is a stray incident", BJP spokesman Niranjan Shetty said.

Police arrested four men for the assault and later identified them as workers of Prahar Sanghatana organisation of Bachchu Kadu, an independent MLA from Achalpur in Amravati district. He was called to the police station for interrogation today.
