Bhadoria was booked under Indian Penal Code Section 307 (attempt to murder). He was released on bail on Wednesday. After Bhadoria came out of a local jail, his supporters took out a procession along with music and drum beats and gave him a milk bath, which the BJP criticised.

Madhya Pradesh BJP spokesperson Umesh Sharma claimed that “by organising such events and glorifying an accused in a serious case, the Congress is indulging in criminalisation of politics.” However, state Congress secretary Neelabh Shukla claimed a false FIR was registered against Bhadoria at the behest of the BJP. Shukla further claimed that Bhadoria was not present at the spot during the alleged attack on Shinde.
