Ghaziabad: A youth was arrested for
defacing a hoarding of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati
at the Collectorate campus here, police said today.



Braham Pal Singh had painted the face of the chief
minister black in protest against alleged police inaction in a
theft case, they said.

Singh, arrested yesterday, said during interrogation
that he was angry over delay in action by the police in the
theft case which he had registered recently.

District Magistrate R Ramesh Kumar said Singh was
arrested on charges of damaging government property and the
act amounted to a "gross disrespect" to the Chief Minister.
