Ghaziabad: Thirty Jat local leaders on Sunday courted arrest and were later released on bail after they called off their stir demanding reservation in government jobs for their community.

Activists of All-India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) led by general secretary Satyapal Chodhury were arrested by Circle Officer Ranvijay Singh.

Yashpal Malik, spokesman for AIJASS, addressed a group of protesters in Shamsher village, saying the agitation would go on for an indefinite period. The Jat leaders, however, called off the protest and courted arrest.
