BJP’s Saharanpur city president Amit Gagneja and BJP MP Raghav Lakhanpal’s brother Rahul, who have non-bailable warrants pending against them in connection with violence between two communities in April, were photographed practicing yoga at an event led by Agriculture Minister Surya Pratap Shahi in Saharanpur city on Wednesday.

The event was organised by the administration at the Ambedkar stadium, where a number of officials, including District Magistrate PK Pandey and SSP Babloo Kumar, and public had gathered to take part in the session.
The photographs show the accused sitting in the same arena as Shahi, who is also the in-charge minister for Saharanpur. Shahi was not available for comment.

Gagneja and Rahul are accused in cases related to violence in Sadak Doodhli village over a procession on April 20. They are accused of rioting, unlawful assembly and voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from duty. Saharanpur SSP Babloo Kumar said there were no restrictions on people for yoga session. He added that while police personnel were present at the spot, they may not have recognised the accused.

“The cases are being investigated by a Special Investigation Team. The investigating officer of the case will decide on making any arrests as per evidence,” he said.
