LUCKNOW: Several right-wing activists were arrested after they gathered outside Lulu Mall in Lucknow on Saturday and staged protests over the ongoing namaz video row. On Friday, four people had been arrested for reciting the Sundar Kand outside the Lulu Mall.

Police are going through CCTV footage,” said Rajesh Srivastava, ADCP, South Lucknow.
The mall, owned by MA Yusuf Ali of Abu Dhabi -based LuLu Group, was inaugurated by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath last Sunday.
