Apart, police also booked nine persons for pelting stones on policemen and vandalising vehicles parked outside shops and houses. Police arrested all those under relevant sections.
As soon as news of police case reached Thakur, he immediately absconded from town. On Wednesday, heavy police force was deployed in the town. Police team conducted flag march at Nai Sadak, Azad Chowk, Killa Road and other parts of town.
