Three BJP leaders were on Wednesday arrested when they were on their way to Gorakhpur, which has witnessed violence over the last few days, police sources said.

The three — former Union Minister Santosh Gangwar and party leaders Dharmendra Deo and Satyaprakash Ahluwalia — had been sent to Gorakhpur by the BJP Central leadership to take stock of the situation there.

They were arrested from the Vaishali Express, which was bound for Gorakhpur.
