MEERUT: Former Uttar Pradesh minister and BSP leader Haji Yaqub Qureshi's son has been booked for allegedly threatening traders by wielding a gun at a market here, the police said today.     

The traders lodged a complaint at the Sohrab Gate Police Outpost last evening against the minister's son Bhura, Circle Officer Dinesh Chand Shukla said.     

They claimed that the incident occurred after Bhura's car got stuck in traffic at the market place, he said.

The complainants alleged that bouncers accompanying the accused assaulted a shopkeeper and then Bhura threatened them by wielding a pistol, the circle officer said.     

He said a case has been registered in the matter.     

The former minister, however, termed it as a minor incident, saying, " the matter is a local issue and it is being resolved."
