VHP leader Pravin Togadia, who briefly went missing on Monday, yesterday charged that "some people" were trying to stifle his voice and that he was not allowed to speak on issues like the Ram Temple, farmers and cow slaughter. A tearful Togadia, 62, made the allegations at a press conference, where he also said that he went into hiding as he feared police would kill him in an encounter.

"I am being targeted for a decade-old case, there is an attempt to suppress my voice. A Rajasthan Police team came to arrest me. Someone told me a plan was being made to kill me in an encounter," Togadia claimed. The VHP leader said he will surrender before the court in Rajasthan after he is discharged from hospital.
