45 people booked for brandishing firearms during Maharana Pratap Jayanti procession
Forty-five people have been booked for conducting a Maharana Pratap Jayanti procession through an unauthorized route and brandishing firearms, police said on Wednesday.
The incident came into light after a purported video surfaced on social media, they said.
Firearms were displayed and loud music played during the procession organized by the Maharana Pratap Yuva Sanghtan on Tuesday, the police said.
The organizers have been charged for taking the data through a "sensitive locality" in contravention of a designated route, they said, adding that there is no precedent of taking out such a procession.
Among the 45 people booked, 20 have been named, the police said.
Maharana Pratap Jayanti, commemorating the courage and valor of the warrior king of Mewar, was celebrated on Tuesday.
