LUCKNOW: An FIR was today registered against Union Minister Anupriya Patel under various sections of IPC for violating prohibitory orders during her visit to state capital.

The FIR was lodged against Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare and others under IPC sections 143 (unlawful assembly), 341 (wrongful restraint), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) at Hazratganj police station, SHO Hazratganj, Vijaymal Yadav told PTI.         

The Apna Dal MP from Mirzapur during her visit here yesterday was received by supporters at the airport and her cavalcade comprising scores of cars created massive traffic jam in Hazratganj -- the city's fashionable commercial hub -- and other areas.          

This was her first visit to the city after being inducted in the Narendra Modi cabinet last month.

Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) have been enforced in the Hazratganj area by the district administration to prohibit assembly of more than five persons, holding of demonstrations or carrying of weapons.
