Two arrested for dumping potatoes outside UP CM’s residence
Lucknow, Jan 13 (IANS) Two Samajwadi Party activists have been arrested for allegedly dumping potatoes in high-security areas, including outside Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence and the Vidhan Sabha building here, police said on Saturday.
Lucknow’s Senior Superintendent of Police Deepak Kumar said the arrested persons — Ankit Singh Chauhan and Sushil Pasi — were linked to the Samajwadi Party’s youth wing.
He said after the potato dumping incident on January 6, over 10,000 telephone numbers were on surveillance that led the police to zero in on the two.
Deepak Kumar said a CCTV footage revealed that the potatoes were wheeled into the high-security zone in a vehicle owned by Sanju Katiyar, who is the husband of Kannauj district panchayat chairperson Shilpi Chauhan.
