Police said the accused, Arnav Pratap Singh Chouhan, (22), a resident of Kararkheda, is reportedly a supporter of Kakkaju. Police official Badam Singh Yadav said a case under IPC section 506 (criminal intimidation) was registered against Chouhan on a complaint filed by one of Scindia's supporters. No arrest has been made.

Kakkaju, the legislator from Pichhore, was being considered a strong contender for a cabinet post in the Kamal Nath-led government. Kakkaju's supporters had staged a protest in Bhopal on 25 December as he failed to find a berth in the Congress government which came to power after the last month's elections.

In a Facebook post on 25 December, Chouhan wrote, "Scindia should not enter Pichhore....Kakkaju Jindabad." It was accompanied by a picture with a pistol. He, however, deleted the post later and apologised for it.
