Ahmedabad: Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti convener Hardik Patel and 59 others have been booked for alleged rioting at a BJP member’s house on Monday. The police said 11 of his supporters had been arrested while they were on the lookout for Hardik and his remaining supporters. Hardik and his supporters allegedly gathered in front of the residence of Paresh Patel, councillor from Vastral, around 2 am to protest the arrest of one of their aides, Krunal Patel, on the councillor’s complaint. Paresh had reportedly complained to the police that Krunal posted “objectionable messages” against him on the social media following which Krunal was arrested. He also complained Hardik and his supporters issued death threat to him and burnt a BJP flag. Krunal, on being released on bail, alleged he was beaten up by the police. OC
