Police stops Tiranga Yatra
Mathura, Aug 16: Khwaja Garib Nawaz Educational and Welfare Society's efforts to take out a 'Tiranga Yatra' here on the occasion of Independence Day were foiled by police today.
SSP Babloo Kumar said the organisation was not allowed to take out the yatra as it had not sought permission for the same.
The organisers celebrated the Independence Day near Islamia School here and later dispersed off peacefully, he said.
Meanwhile, Rashtriya Lok Dal district chief Narendra Singh said it was strange that in the "Yogi raj" one has to take permission for a programme related to Independence Day.
