Suspended BJP MP Babubhai Katara was on Friday brought to his native town Dahod by a Delhi Police team which conducted searches at his house and office as part of the probe into the human trafficking case allegedly involving him, police sources said.
The tribal leader was taken to Dahod on Friday morning amid tight security. The police team first went to a school run by an NGO headed by Katara in Chitrodia village of Dahod district, they said.
