In response, Vadra said the government would try to stop her if she wanted to go anywhere other than the party office. "The moment I try to visit any place other than the party office, then they (Administration) try to stop me...It is also causing inconvenience to the public," Vadra said.

I want to meet them, what is the big deal?" she added. A plumber arrested by police yesterday in connection with a 25 lakh theft from a warehouse on October 17 has died in police custody.
