Police today claimed to have booked seven persons, including gram pradhan of Ghatayen village, for alleged violation of model code of conduct ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.

According to Tehsildar Manoj Kumar, gram pradhan Sandeep Kumar along with his supporters had put a banner on the entry gate of the village threatening that no candidate except RLD's Mithilesh Pal would be allowed to campaign in the Miranpur constituency.

The police removed the controversial banner on getting the information and registered a case against the seven accused for violation of model code of conduct yesterday.

The first phase of the crucial state Assembly polls are slated to begin from February 11.
