Varanasi Violence: Pictures of policemen setting vehicles on fire goes viral. Congress MLA Ajay Rai was arrested for his alleged role in the violence in this holy city during a march by sadhus against police action on protesters opposing ban on immersion of Ganesha idols in the Ganga river.
Terming Monday’s violence that led to a two-hour curfew in parts of Varanasi as an outcome of a ‘high level’ conspiracy hatched by the centre and state, the Congress demanded a judicial probe into the matter.
Irked by the arrest of Congress MLA Ajay Rai for his alleged involvement in the outbreak of violence on October 5 in the city, the Congressmen have decided to adopt an aggressive approach and go for court arrest whenever any party worker or seer is arrested.
