Shimla, Oct 11 (UNI) Industrialist DC Anand, chairman of the Anand group of industries, accused of physically assaulting his sister was arrested last night and later released on bail.
''Anand was arrested at Parwanoo late last night and his statement recorded and was released after furnishing a bond of Rs 5,000,'' police sources said.
The sources said that the industrialist has denied before the investigating officer his involvement in the assault case.
Anand was on the run after his 70-year old younger sister Urmila Sawhney lodged a complaint against him having assaulted her last week.
The police had got her medical examined and had registered a case against Anand under Sections 341, 323, 506, 34 sections of IPC.
Property dispute among DC Anand and his youngest brother Satish Anand is said to be the cause of the dispute.
Meanwhile, fearing for her life, Urmila has decided to approach the National Women's Cell and Senior Citizens Forum for protection, she said in a press release here.
