Urai: The jailor of a prison reportedly folded his hands and greeted BJP MLA Sangeet Som here. Som was arrested for alleged inciting communal violence in Muzaffarnagar.

As per reports, the jailor, LP Singh, has been caught on camera greeting the BJP leader as he was walking inside the jail premises in Jalaun district. The jailor was in plainclothes. Meanwhile, a couple of other policemen standing there also welcomed Som with a salute.
Uttar Pradesh BJP legislators, Som and Suresh Rana, were arrested after a court issued a warrant against them. Bahujan Samaj Party legislator Noor Salim Rana has also been arrested in connection with the riots.
Communal violence in Muzaffarnagar earlier this month has left more than 45 people dead and hundreds have fled their homes in fear.
