INDIA: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said today she had been “illegally held” by the Uttar Pradesh government for over 24 hours and targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not acting against a Union Minister whose son is accused of running over farmers at a protest in Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday.

“Why is the opposition arrested without any order and a man who has committed such a horrendous crime… he is not arrested? PM Modi, arrest him, not people like us,”.

On Tuesday, Uttar Pradesh officers said a case had been registered against Priyanka Gandhi and others “related to preventive detention for breach of peace”. But sources close to the Congress leader said she had not been served any order and not shown an FIR either. She was also reportedly not allowed to meet her counsel who had waited “at the gate” of the detention center since morning.

According to a list on social media, 11 people have been named in the FIR. The Congress says eight of them were not even present at the time and one man had just brought Priyanka Gandhi’s clothes from Lucknow.
