Allahabad, 10 Oct: A Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader grabbed the space in headlines for his shameful act after he was caught wearing burqa and molesting women at a Muharram Majlis, a programme recalling and showing respect for Muharram on Saturday night.
Police have registered a case against the accused, Abhishek Yadav. As per reports, Abhishek was accompanied by another person also donning a burqa, who managed to flee from the place.
A milaad programme was taking place in Mauaima district in Allahabad in which Muslim clerics were delivering religious speeches. The crowd was sitting on the basis of gender and male and females were sitting separately.
At around 11.50 pm, a woman sitting next to burqa-clad Abhishek Yadav observed something wrong and complained about the same. Locals on becoming alert, asked the person to take-off the veil. The person refused to do so, after which some of the women there snatched away his veil.
