Man who triggered beef row arrested

New Delhi: Hindu Sena chief Vishnu Gupta was on Wednesday arrested for filing a false complaint that beef was served at the Kerala House here.

"Gupta has been arrested under Section 107 (abetment) and 151 (knowingly joining assembly of five or more persons after it has been commanded to disperse) of the IPC," Joint Commissioner of Police M.K. Meena told IANS.

A case under section 107 (abetment) and 151 (knowingly joining assembly of five or more persons after it has been commanded to disperse) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered against Gupta at Connaught Place police station in central Delhi.

Another police official said Gupta was on police radar over several cases and also accused of attacking former Aam Aadmi Party leader and lawyer Prashant Bhushan.

On Monday, Gupta complained to police that beef - by which he meant "cow's meat" - was being served at Kerala House, following which the police raided the premises.

Police later denied that it was a "raid" at the guest house.

The action came in for widespread criticism as only buffalo meat was served in the Kerala House canteen.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police Wednesday afternoon submitted a detailed report to the union home ministry over "illegally raiding" the Kerala House here over allegations that beef was being served there.

"A detail report over the beef row has been submitted to the home ministry," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat told IANS.

Bhagat said the report includes the action taken by Delhi Police over the issue.

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and some political parties termed it an attack on the federal structure.

Chandy has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take action against the police officers who raided Kerala House.

"We have resumed serving carabeef (buffalo meat) to guests from today (Wednesday)," a Kerala House official told IANS.
