Kushwaha said FIRs had been registered against those involved in the violence and they were being arrested irrespective of their parties.

"Law is the same for everybody. If Azam Khan had been involved in the violence, a case would have been registered against him and he would have been arrested. Since there is no case against him, this topic is null," he said.

Kushwaha said cases had been registered against 18 people, including a councillor of Samajwadi Party, and he has been arrested as well. "For SP, all the people who are guilty are same irrespective of which party they belong to," he asserted.
