Congress President Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was arrested by police on Wednesday in Lucknow on her way to Agra to meet the relatives of a man who had died in custody. She is taken to the police lines. While stopping her, police told her, "You do not have permission, we cannot allow you."

The car had stopped at the first toll booth on the Lucknow-Agra highway.Vadra wanted to meet the family of a sanitation worker who was arrested in connection with a robbery and died in police custody. 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.

"They say I can not go to Agra. They stop me wherever I go. Should I keep sitting in restaurants? Just because it is politically convenient for them? 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.

ADG Agra, Rajiv Krishna said: "Our officers are in contact with his family. They're cooperating. Action will be taken if there was any negligence. The family has filed a complaint, they suspect that he was beaten up by the Police following which he died. FIR registered, matter it will be probed."
