Lucknow: Pressing for a CBI probe into
the arson at her house here on July 15 last, UPCC President
Rita Bahuguna Joshi has returned the security personnel
provided by the State Government to guard her house in the
wake of the incident.

"The state government and senior police officials who
had instigated arson at my house cannot provide security to it
and I do not require any police personnel to keep vigil at my
house", Joshi said here today.

The UPCC President, who continues to stay at her
residence with her personal staff even though it has been
damaged in the devastating fire, said that she does not want
any security from the state government.

Congress spokesman, Subodh Srivastava said that two
constables had been provided for the security of Joshi`s house
in the high security zone after the incident but it was
returned by her yesterday itself.

The UPCC president is capabale of taking the
challenges herself with the help of Congress workers,
Srivasatava said, adding that the party would settle for
nothing less than a CBI probe as only then the reality behind
the violence and its perpetrators would be identified and
exposed before the people.
