The SP'>BSP sacked Uttarakhand unit president Meghraj Singh Jaraware on charges of involvement in criminal activities. Jaraware, who is also a member of legislative council (MLC) on SP'>BSP ticket, has been replaced with Sooraj Mal.
On July 9, the day of the wedding, Jarawares son Amit and his nephews Sonu and Sanni had gatecrashed the venue and tried to drag the girl away with them, saying she was in love with Sanni. The girl had first met Sanni while teaching at a school run by Jaraware in her native village Salempur, and had quit after he allegedly started harassing her.
Amit, Sonu and Sanni were arrested and sent in 14 days judicial custody.
The incident had caused outrage in Deoband, where the wedding was taking place, with the opposition parties starting a campaign for Jarawares arrest.
