Jaipur – Ajmer Dargah worker Salman Chishti had made a provocative appeal through a video saying, I will give my own house to the person who beheaded Nupur Sharma. After protests, Chishti was arrested by Ajmer Deputy Commissioner of Police Sandeep Saraswat. A video of Chishti being taken away after the arrest was circulated on social media by a BJP leader. In the video, Deputy Commissioner of Police Sandeep Saraswat was advising Chishti to say he was drunk while making the offensive video so he could be saved. Later, the Police spread the fake tale that Chishti was in a state of intoxication.
