The condition of Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament Virendra Kumar Khatik, who was beaten up allegedly by Railway Protection Force personnel, is stable and he is out of danger, doctors said on Saturday.

The MP from Sagar was beaten up on Friday during an anti-encroachment drive near Bina railway station. He was hit by RPF personnel while protesting against the removal of encroachments from Chhoti Bajaria area, police had said.

Khatik, who suffered injuries on his head, back and a finger, was admitted to Hamidia Hospital. The MP was out of danger and has been advised complete rest, Dr D K Verma said.

Verma said there were ten stitches on Khatik's head.

Madhya Pradesh Director General of Police S K Raut has asked Railway Inspector General Mohan Rao to conduct an inquiry into the incident and submit a report within three days.

Raut, who visited the hospital to inquire about the lawmaker's condition, said action would be taken in the case once the probe report is submitted.
