Priyanka Vadra attempts to visit Sonbhadra massacre site despite section 144, detained by police at guest house

After meeting the injured persons in the Sonbhadra massacre, Priyanka Vadra was on her way to meet families of the victims

Congress leader Priyanka Vadra was detained by police in Uttar Pradesh after she tried to visit Sonbhadra in Uttar Pradesh. The Congress General Secretary was on her way to meet the family members of those who were killed over a land dispute. The police took her to the district headquarters from Narayanpur where she was sitting in a dharna for stopping her from going to Sonbhadra.

On July 17, 10 tribal persons were shot dead by armed henchmen of a gram Pradhan over a piece of land in Sonbhadra district. According to reports, around 300 people in 32 tractor-trailers were brought to occupy land belonging to tribal people. When they opposed the move, the occupiers started firing them. According to survivors, the firing went for half an hour. They also beat people will sticks who fell down to the ground after being shot.

The locals didn’t know that the attackers were armed, and when the firing started, they started running and called the police, who arrived after an hour. 10 people were killed in the attack, and 23 were injured. Police have arrested 29 people so far in the case, including the main accused gram pradhan. Police have also recovered guns and rifles from the accused.

Earlier today Priyanka Vadra visited BHU hospital Varanasi where the injured in the massacre are being treated. After that when she was on her way to Sonbhadra to meet the families of victims, her convoy was stopped by the administration at Narayanpur in Mirzapur. Priyanka Vadra objected to this and demanded to see the order prohibiting her visit and give her the reason for the same. She also offered to go with just 4 aides to comply with section 144, but the administration didn’t agree citing prohibitory orders.

Following this, the Congress leader sat on a dharna along with her aides. After some time, Priyanka Vadra was taken away by police in SDM’s vehicles from the location. The District administration has said no political parties will be allowed to visit the area where section 144 has been imposed.

Although media reports said that the Congress General Secretary was detained, police has denied it. Even Congress party alleged that she was detained. But UP DGP has said that Priyanka Vadra has been moved to Chunar Guest House, and she has not been detained since section 144 is in place.

UP CM Yogi Adityanath has assured strict action in the case. He said that the foundation of this incident was laid in 1955 when the then Tehsildar did the unlawful act of registering the land of Gram Samaj in the name of Adarsh Cooperative society.
