BJP MP Yogi Adityanath was detained today at the railway station here when he arrived to meet the family of a right-wing activist, who was shot dead by some unidentified assailants.


Adityanath had arrived here by Vaishali Express to meet the family of slain Yuva Vahini leader Babu Lal Gupta, a BJP party worker told reporters here.

Superintendent of Police Shivshankar Yadav said the BJP MP was taken into custody as they had received an order that he should not be allowed to visit Ambedkarnagar where series of arson and violence took place after Gupta was shot dead.
