LUCKNOW: Swami Prasad Maurya, who recently joined BJP after quitting BSP, has been booked for violating prohibitory orders during his visit to the state capital.

The FIR was registered against Maurya yesterday night and others under IPC sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), SHO Hazratganj, Vijaymal Yadav said.

During his visit to party office in Hazratganj area from Airport, Maurya was accompanied by a number of supporters in a cavalcade of cars creating traffic jam.

The supporters also burst crackers outside the BJP office to welcome Maurya in party fold.
