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.

Prohibitory orders under section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) have been enforced in the Hazratganj area by the district administration prohibiting assembly of more than 10 people, holding of demonstrations or carrying of weapons.

On August 7, an FIR was registered against Apna Dal MP Anupriya Patel from Mirzapur on same charges during her first visit to the city after being inducted in the Narendra Modi cabinet last month.
