On her way to see the families of the victims of Sunday's carnage in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri district, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was arrested in Hargaon on Monday. Following the incident, Priyanka Gandhi arrived at the Lucknow airport on Sunday evening and was stopped by the police multiple times on her trip to Lakhimpur Kheri. Her convoy was stopped in Lucknow, and the Kaul House, where she stays during her visits to Lucknow, was encircled by police.

"Warrant nikalo, order nikalo nahi toh main yahan se nahi hil rahi hoon (Produce a warrant or a legal order or else I am not moving out from here) and if you will put me in that car I will charge you with kidnapping. And the charge will not be against the police but you," Priyanka tells the police.

In areas of the violence-plagued district, mobile internet services have been suspended, and prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC have been issued.

The arrest has sparked major controversy on all the social media platforms, as netizens raise questions about the arrest.
