Hindu Sena leader Vishnu Gupta, whose complaint about beef being served in New Delhi's Kerala House canteen leading to a massive controversy, was arrested on Wednesday evening. Several teams of Delhi Police had visited the Kerala House canteen on Monday evening following the complaint, which was seen as yet another case of paranoia over cow meat.
Investigation later revealed that it was buffalo meet, and not cow, that was on the menu. The popular 'carabeef', meanwhile, has returned to the menu at canteen after massive uproar by Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and his counterparts in Delhi and West Bengal.
The Delhi Police action had triggered allegations of "intolerance" and an attack on the federal structure by Chandy and other opposition leaders. In its defence, Delhi Police said they visited Kerala House only to prevent any tension or untoward incident.
Chandy meanwhile urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to instruct Home Minister Rajnath Singh to take action against the police officers who "raided" the Kerala House. Delhi Police is under the control of the central government.
