Locals would be questioned to zero in on the culprits, police said to PTI. Authorities would also scan the CCTV footage to see if they ascertain the identity of the people behind the act. Last year in August, ‘missing’ posters of then Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had come up in Amethi. The posters carried a picture of Rahul and said, “Amethi MP Rahul Gandhi has been missing from the constituency due to which the development work to be undertaken by the MP is not being done. The common man feels betrayed and insulted.” They also offered a reward to whoever could find the missing MP for the Amethi public. A week later, posters declaring his mother and senior Congress leader Sonia Gandhi as ‘missing’ had surfaced in Rae Bareli.
