Sambhal: A man was arrested for allegedly putting up a board, forbidding BJP leaders and workers from entering his village Bichpuri Sailab in the Gunnaur or the district.
The police rushed to the village after getting information that some people were not allowing some BJP workers to enter the village after putting up a board forbidding their entry and arrested their leader Niranjan Singh, Circle officer Devendra Sharma said.
The police also made six others sign a bond undertaking that they will not involve themselves in any such activities in future, he said.
