Haridwar: Yati Narsinghanand – one of the religious leaders who addressed an event called ‘Dharm Sansad’ in Haridwar last month that called for the genocide of Muslims – was arrested on Saturday, becoming the second person to be taken into custody following an intervention by the Supreme Court.

Jitendra Narayan Singh Tyagi, who was Waseem Rizvi before he converted, was the first accused to be arrested in the hate speech case involving the Haridwar ‘Dharma Sansad’ or religious assembly.

Over the last two weeks, the saffron-robed Narsinghanand has gone from cackling with cops about how a police officer “will be on our side” to cursing them – “all of you will die,” he said on Friday after the first arrest.
