VHP says Togadia is missing, police deny arresting him

I then contacted the chief minister and home minister of Rajasthan about the police action as I was not aware of any such case against me. "After being elected for the third time, Togadia began challenging the Centre on issues related to farmers, Ram temple and cow slaughter".

Togadia told reporters today he left his house after getting some messages that a team of Rajasthan police was coming to arrest and "encounter" (kill in a fake encounter) him.

Before leaving, Togadia told the security staff that he will be back within 30 minutes, PTI reported.

"All the office-bearers and workers of VHP are anxious about the disappearance of Praveenbhai Togadia". "Now his life is in danger".

Asked who could be behind this alleged plot to get him killed, Togadia refused to name any names.

According to Togadia, while he was praying in his house, a man - could be a police official, a close aide or just anyone (Togadia didn't say who he was) - rushed to his room and told him to leave everything aside as "some people were out to encounter him (sic)".

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Pravin Togadia who reportedly went "missing" since Monday morning, was found lying unconscious at Shahi Baug, Ahmedabad in Gujarat, TV9 reported.

VHP activists led a series of protests across major towns of Gujarat state. Is it possible? Who, then, is responsible for the calculated re-opening of old cases against me?

"I am being targeted for a decades-old case, there is an attempt to suppress my voice". How and why are Rajasthan and Gujarat Police forces following such orders?

Reports said Togadia was at the VHP office on Monday morning and left around 11:00 a.m. local time in an auto-rickshaw, following which he went untraceable.

Meanwhile, Sola police station inspector J S Patel said "Rajasthan police today sought our help to execute the warrant against Pravin Togadia, as his residence falls in our area".

However, the Rajasthan Police denied having detained or arrested Togadia. "This is a serious issue and the state government should order an inquiry", said Gehlot. "I don't remember anything after that", said Togadia.

This was after the Metropolitan Court cancelled a non-bailable warrant issued against Togadia, the International Working President of the right-wing militant outfit, VHP. "But he has been recovering fast and is stable", said Dr Rupkumar Agrawal of Chandramani private hospital where he was found.

Sola Police Station Officer, GS Patel, said, "The Rajasthan Police had a search warrant for Togadia but no arrest was made. I have received information that this was done purposefully by someone higher up, without the intervention of (state) Home Minister or Chief Minister".
