Later, Vyas was accused of implicating RSS functionaries in incidents of communal violence. The Hindu Jagaran Manch demanded action against Vyas and forced a shutdown in the district for two days, accusing him of biased action against RSS men.
Over the last four days, several right-wing organisations have taken out rallies in the town in support of the demand to act against Vyas.
