Mirzapur (UP): Suspecting them to be Naxals, Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday questioned some tribals carrying bows and arrows at the venue of a rally addressed by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi at Ahraura, some 60km from here.

The tribals entered the rally ground, raising suspicion that they might be Naxalites as Mirzapur is a Maoist-hit area, police sources said here.

However, it was found that the tribals came to present bows and arrows to the Congress leader, who was to address his first rally in the district, and were called on the dais to give them to Rahul as memento.
