Meerut: An AIMIM leader was today arrested here for allegedly raising provocative slogans against a particular religion at a condolence meet for a Dalit youth killed during the Jat stir.
“Wali-ur-Rahman, city president of AIMIM has been arrested. Two leaders of Arakshan Bachao Sangharsh Samiti, Amit Gautam and Gaurav Parcha, who were also involved in the incident are yet to be nabbed. Efforts are on to arrest the others accused in the incident,” SP (Rural) Pravin Ranjan said.
On February 24, activists of ABSS and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) had gathered for a condolence meet of a Dalit youth from Muzaffarnagar, Kuldeep, who was killed in Sonipat on February 21 during the pro-quota stir by the Jat community.
After the meet, they took out a procession to submit their demands to Sardhana Tehsildar when some of them blocked the road and raised slogans against a particular religion.
Police had booked nine persons for hurting religious sentiments and blocking roads.
