Following a protest by Samajwadi Party members outside the Uttar Pradesh Police headquarters here regarding the arrest of a party leader, police have filed a case against unidentified individuals for allegedly engaging in an unlawful assembly.
A case has been filed against unnamed individuals under sections 188 of the Indian Penal Code (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (prohibiting unlawful assembly), according to Shailendra Giri, house officer of the Sushant Golf City police station.
He added that the case had been filed late Sunday night.
Manish Jagan Agarwal, a leader in the Samajwadi Party, was detained on Sunday after a member of the BJP’s youth wing claimed she had received threats of rape and murder for comments she had made on social media. The Samajwadi Party claimed that the complainant had made offensive comments about its MP Dimple Yadav, leading to the police also booking the complainant.
Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the party, and his supporters protested at the state police headquarters and demanded the release of Agarwal, a member of the SP’s social media cell, shortly after his arrest.
