Issuing a press release, DCP central Dinesh Singh confirmed that Shahanwaz was arrested for involvement in the anti-CAA protest which came about on December 19, 2019 in Lucknow. He has been arrested after the police gathered proof against him.

Meanwhile, UP Congress chief Ajay Lallu and state Congress legislative party chief Aradhna Mishra together with the party workers reached the Hazratganj police station to investigate in regards to the cops action against the party chief and two different folks.

The Congress leaders also had an argument with senior cops on the police station.

The party leaders also alleged that the police resorted to lathicharge to disperse Congress workers.

Speaking to India Today, UP Congress spokesperson Ashok Singh mentioned, “Shahanwaz, his driver and a celebration employee have been picked up by the police on Monday late night. However, the police arrested Shahanwaz and launched the opposite two folks. The cops also impounded a car. This govt is behaving like an autocrat and is unnecessarily concentrating on Congress leaders and workers who’re exposing the improper doings of the state govt.”

“The party earlier booked our state president Ajay Lallu under false charges and now different leaders are being focused. However our voice can’t be muzzled and we are going to proceed to struggle for the rights of migrant workers and disadvantaged,” he added.

“Our party workers who gathered on the police station to investigate in regards to the Shahanwaz unlawful arrest have been also lathicharged by the police,” claimed the Congress spokesperson.
