Whereas on April 26, Saturday, Bajrang Dal activists staged a protest at the toll gate blocking the road for some time and as they dispersed, another group arrived at the spot and vandalized the booths. According to the eyewitnesses, the group who vandalized the booth was general public and not Bajrang Dal activists. But during the course of protest, activists used foul language against the lady DySP Rashmi Paradi, who tried to control the situation.
