Two workers of the Samajwadi Party have been held for allegedly pasting 'missing' posters of Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Lucknow MLA Suresh Srivastava. Singh is MP from Lucknow.

The posters were put up on Saturday afternoon in Saadatganj, Para, Thakurganj and Talkatora areas.

As soon as the news of the posters spread, a large number of BJP workers reached the areas and Vijay Shukla, the personal secretary of Lucknow MLA Suresh Srivastava, lodged a complaint with the Para police.

Shukla, in his complaint to the police, said that Sameer Khan aka Sultan and Jai Singh Yadav had put up the posters to malign the image of the BJP MP and MLA.

The posters carried the names of the two SP workers.

SHO Para, Triloki Nath, said that Khan and Yadav have been booked under the charges of defamation and statements of mischief. "The duo is in police custody," Singh said on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, another FIR was also lodged against the SP workers under charges of defamation and statements of mischief at Talkatora police station also. This FIR was lodged on the complaint of one Dharmendra Sharma.
