Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was on Saturday stopped by police when she was on her way to meet the family of former IPS officer SR Darapuri in  Lucknow who was arrested during anti-CAA protests.

“They have stopped me midway on the road. What is the meaning of this? This is not an issue of SPG but that of Uttar Pradesh Police. People are disturbed due to this traffic disruption,” Priyanka Gandhi told news agency ANI.

She further alleged that the UP police manhandled her. “UP police stopped me while I was going to meet the family of Darapuri ji. A policewoman strangulated and manhandled me. They surrounded me while I was going on a party worker’s two-wheeler, after which I walked to reach there,” she added.

Congress said in a tweet that Gandhi’s car was “forcefully stopped” by UP Police while she “was on her way to meet the family members of former IPS officer SR Darapuri”.

Police have arrested over 1200 people in connection with the violence which erupted in the wake of the protests against CAA.
