Lucknow: Supporters of Samajwadi Party (SP) candidate Abhay Singh and BJP candidate Aarti Tiwari from Gosaiganj assembly seat in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya district clashed late on Friday night. Both sides had accused each other of stone-pelting and firing. In this case, the police have arrested SP candidate Abhay Singh. According to information, he was arrested from home at 4 am.
The dispute started after the vehicles of supporters of both parties came face to face near the Kabirpur intersection under the Maharajganj police station area. Both the parties had accused each other of pelting stones and firing. In the same case, SP candidate Abhay Singh has been arrested and brought to the police line. At the same time, Abhay Singh alleged that the supporters of BJP candidate Aarti Tiwari had attacked him.
During his arrest, Abhay Singh said that a conspiracy was being hatched against him. That's why they're being arrested. At the same time, he told his supporters that now I am going to jail, now the election is in your hands. BJP candidate Aarti Tiwari's husband and former BJP MLA Indra Pratap Tiwari alias Khabbu Tiwari is already in jail in a corruption case. Therefore, to avoid a confrontation in the Ayodhya district jail, the Ayodhya police administration is preparing to send Abhay Singh to another jail in another district.
