Car that ran over farmers ours, son wasn’t in it: Union Min; case against Deependra Hooda, Ajay Kumar Lallu in Sitapur

SITAPUR/ NEW DELHI: Over 24 hours after keeping her at a local guest house, the Sitapur police on Tuesday officially arrested Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi and at least 10 others, to “prevent the commission of cognizable offences”.

Priyanka had been stopped on her way to Lakhimpur Kheri, where eight people died after a car owned by Union MoS Home Ajay Mishra allegedly ran over protesting farmers, triggering a clash and countrywide outrage.

The case under Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) Sections 151, 107, 116 (all related to preventive detention due to apprehension of breach of peace) has also been registered against Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Ajay Kumar Lallu and party leader Deependra Hooda, officials said.

“These are preventive sections. Once we get assurance that there would not be violation of peace by them these sections will be removed,” Sitapur Sub-divisional Magistrate Pyare Lal Maurya said.

Priyanka alleged that the Uttar Pradesh police has not communicated the circumstances or the sections under which she has been charged, 38 hours after she was initially detained. She released a statement claiming that she has not been produced in front of a Magistrate and has also not been allowed to meet legal counsel.
