Uttar Pradesh government on Thursday said a probe would be conducted into BJP MP Yogi Adityanath's forcible eviction from a train compartment at Ghaziabad railway station last evening when he was on his way to Gorakhpur from Delhi.


Raising the matter through an adjournment notice during the zero hour in the assembly, Radha Mohan Das Agarwal of BJP said Adityanath was stopped by policmen at Ghaziabad railway station without showing him any order for doing the same.

Adityanath was evicted from the train by the policemen who kept him waiting from 8.30 in the night till 3.30 am , Agarwal said adding the MP has also suffered bruises on his hand.

Agarwal said Adityanath was travelling in the train which does not even go to the place (Tanda in Ambedkarnagar where the administration could have suspected him of going) and demanded a high-level inquiry into the incident and action against those responsible for it.

Shyam Deo Roy Chaudhary (BJP)said alleged misbehaviour with the MP only on suspicion is condemnable.

Parliamentary affairs minister Azam Khan said an inquiry would be conducted and proper action initiated against those responsible for showing disrespect to the MP.
