Padmaavat: Haryana BJP media coordinator Suraj Pal Amu under ‘house arrest’
Karni Sena leader and ex-BJP member Suraj Pal Amu, who had announced a Rs. 10 crore bounty for beheading Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone, got arrested in Gurugram on Thursday.
He has been booked under section 107/51 of the CrPC.
For the uninitiated, Amu had reportedly made remarks about doubling the offer that was made by a youth from Meerut announcing a Rs. 5 crore bounty for beheading Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
"We will reward the ones beheading them with Rs 10 crore and also take care of their family needs...We know very well how to treat those who insult the Rajput community," Amu had reportedly said. The Haryana BJP had immediately distanced itself from Amu's remarks, saying he had made them in his personal capacity.
As many as 23 have been arrested in connection with violence at two places in Gurugram district on Wednesday.
Besides, two persons were arrested for vandalising a mall in Kurukshetra town recently and eight persons arrested as part of preventive measures.
