Mathura/Nagpur: BJP MP Hema Malini was today stopped from entering the violence-hit Jawahar Bagh area of Mathura district by police, citing security reasons and the ongoing combing operation. Police said combing operations are underway in the area due to which entry of civilians is prohibited.
“This is not a big issue and there was no ulterior motive to bar the MP from entering the area. Combing operations are underway and the area is being examined by police teams and experts.
“The place has still not been declared safe. It would be difficult for us to answer if any further casualty takes place,” police said.
In town to meet the victims of the violence, the Mathura MP, who had faced flak for uploading pictures of her film shoot as violence erupted in her constituency, met the injured policemen at the hospital. She also condoled the death of Mukul Dwivedi, Superintendent of Police and Santosh Yadav, Station House officer, Farah.
