Arijit Shashwat surrenders before police; named in FIR on communal clashes

Arijit however, shouted slogans like "Jai Shri Ram"

In controversy for quite a few days, Arijit Shashwat, son of Union Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey, was on Sunday sent to 14-day judicial custody.

This came about as he surrendered to the police on Saturday late night in front of a temple in Patna.

Shashwat was named as an accused in an FIR in connection with the clashes between two communities in Nathnagar on the outskirts of Bhagalpur on March 17.

He had been evading arrest for quite a few days ever since the Bhagalpur incident.

Arijit however, shouted slogans like “Jai Shri Raam”, “Bharat Mata Ki jai” before surrendering.

It is alleged that Shashwat had led a procession organised by Bharatiya Navvarsh Jagran Samiti on the eve of Hindu New Year.

There were workers of BJP, RSS and Bajrang Dal in the procession and somehow this triggered a communal clash.

Mostly the clashes took place in Medini Chowk , which is a Muslim-dominated area.
