BJP District President Tejveer Singh said the authorities prevented the six-member team led by party's Meerut MP Rajendra Agarwal, saying the probe by a forensic team was going on at the spot.

"It seems there is something fishy. The administration wants to hide somethig," he alleged and said BJP will raise the matter in Parliament and the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

Singh claimed that the members of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi were "followers of a big gun of Samajwadi Party and sent to seize the land".
