Farukkhabad (UP), Jan 1: An FIR was today lodged against Congress candidate Louis Khurshid, wife of Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid, for violation of model code of conduct, a senior official said here.

The case has been lodged against the Congress candidate at Sadar police station for violation of model code of conduct, additional district magistrate Rajkeshwar Singh said.

Initially, Louis was slapped with a notice for violation of model code of conduct.

District magistrate Sachidanand Shukla earlier said that the Congress candidate was issued a showcause notice. The DM and district electorate officer said that a serious note has been taken of alleged violation of code of conduct.

Khurshid allegedly used two vehicles fitted with red beacon lights during her election campaign yesterday.  BJP district president Bhudeo Singh Rajput flayed the Congress candidate for violating the model code of conduct.

“When the wife of the Union Law Minister herself openly violates the model code of conduct, it would be criminal on the part of the administration not to take action against her,” he said.
