    mukhtar-abbas-naqviUnion Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has been arrested in Uttar Pradesh for alleged violation of Election Code of Conduct.

    A court in Rampur has sentenced Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi to one year jail term and a fine of Rs 4,000 for violating the Model Code of Conduct six years ago. However, Naqvi was then released on a surety of Rs15,000.
