A non-bailable warrant has been issued against expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh for the misogynist remark made by him against BSP supremo Mayawati.
A row broke out after Singh compared former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati to a prostitute in Parliament last week.
BSP leaders staged a massive protest demanding Singh's arrest for the derogatory comment. After an FIR was lodged against him for his inflammatory comment, a police team reached his residence at UP's Ballia district, only to find him missing.
Meanwhile, Dayashankar Singh's family members filed an FIR against Mayawati and other BSP leaders for using foul language against them.
The FIR has been lodged in Lucknow's Hazratganj police station. Mayawati has been accused of criminal conspiracy, intimidation, and promoting enmity.
While addressing a press conference in Lucknow on 24 July, Mayawati lashed out at the BJP for not arresting expelled BJP leader Dayashankar Singh for his remarks against her. She further alleged that the Samajwadi Party was under BJP's pressure, owing to which Dayashankar's arrest was being delayed.
