Dharma Sansad case: Cops pick up Yati Narasimhanand from dharna site in Haridwar
The Uttarakhand Police on Saturday picked up Yati Narasimhanand from his dharna site in Haridwar in connection with the case of Dharma Sansad where alleged hate speeches against Muslims were delivered.
However, the officer said, it was technically not an arrest.
He was picked up from where he was sitting on a dharna in protest against the recent arrest of another accused in the case, Jitendra Narayan Tyagi.
Tyagi was formerly known as Waseem Rizvi and changed his name after converting to Hinduism.
Further action will depend on how the investigation progresses, the official said.
