Maharashtra legislator Ramesh Kadam, lodged in Arthur Road jail here, abused and misbehaved with police officials before he was to be taken for a routine medical check-up recently, a police official has said.

Mumbai Police commissioner Datta Padsalgikar has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

Kadam, an MLA, was arrested for involvement in an alleged scam at Annabhau Sathe Backward Classes Development Corporation, of which he was the chairman.
