An FIR was on Saturday lodged against Congress candidate Louis Khurshid, wife of Law Minister Salman Khurshid, for violation of the model code of conduct, a senior official said.

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 the model code of conduct.

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

Khurshid allegedly used two vehicles fitted with red beacon lights during her election campaign on Friday.

Bharatiya Janata Party 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.
