Former Uttar Pradesh minister Jamuna Nishad was arrested in Lucknow on Tuesday, three days after leading a mob attack on a police station that led to a constable's death.

Constable Krishnanand Rai was killed on Saturday night when a supporter of Nishad opened fire at the Maharajganj Kotwali police station following the alleged rape of two girls.

Chief Minister Mayawati then asked Nishad to quit as the minister of state for fisheries.
