SC refuses to stay Gayatri Prajapatis arrest

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to allow a plea by Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Gayatri Prajapati’s seeking a stay on his arrest and asked him to approach the concerned court. Prajapati, who has been absconding since February 27, had approached the apex court asking for a stay on his arrest.

After the police failed to trace him, Prajapati’s passport was impounded and a non-bailable warrant was issued against him. Meanwhile, on Sunday, Governor Ram Naik also wrote a letter to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav asking him why Prajapati was still continuing as a minister in his cabinet.
