Basti, Mar 12: The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha here today burnt in effigy ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Lalmani Prasad outside his house for his alleged involvement in the controversial CD episode.

Ranting anti-Prasad slogans, a mob led by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha district president Abhaypal and BJP Kisan Morcha national working committee member Divakar Mishra agitated outside the MP's house, sources said. The protestors burnt the effigy of the BSP MP, further demanding his arrest and a CBI probe into the matter.

Meanwhile, Deputy Superintendent of Police (sadar) Ashutosh Shukla reached the spot and posse of police garrisoned to avert any fresh violence.

Yesterday, the police had recovered the objectionable CD from the house of Shivakant, the organising secretary of Bauddh Vihar.

Besides him, Anil Tiwari and Ramfal Maurya were nabbed from the spot. The CD contained disgraceful remarks on Lord Ram and Krishna that hurts the religious sentiments of the Hindus.

Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh government has already recommended a CBI probe into the controversial CD matter.
