Madhya Pradesh: Three Islamists arrested for spitting on Baba Mahakaal procession in Ujjain

When the devotees asked them to stop, they did not pay heed and continued. The devotees made videos of them as proof of the derogatory act. Later, after the procession was complete, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal activists reached the police station and filed a complaint under Sections 295A, 153A, 296, and 505 of the Indian Penal Code.

On 17th July, Ujjain Police arrested three Islamists, including two juveniles, for spitting on the second Baba Mahakaal Procession.

On the second Monday of Sawan month, the procession of Baba Mahakaal was traveling along the Shipra River when it crossed the Kharakuan Police Station area near the iron tank. It is a Muslim-dominanated area.
