Members of the Hindu Yuva Vahini, founded by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, barged into a house on Wednesday and allegedly roughed up a Muslim man and a Hindu woman after they were found together.

Yogi Adityanath had recently instructed police not to harass ‘innocent’ couples after some unsavoury incidents involving anti-Romeo squads.

Police said the youth brigade created a ruckus after some local residents informed them that the man had called the woman to his friend’s rented accommodation.

The activists told police that the two were allegedly found in an objectionable position.

While the woman was released after warning, the man, who is a resident of Muzaffarnagar, was booked on charges of obscenity, they said.

Nagendra Singh Tomar, the head of Hindu Yuva Vahini in western Uttar Pradesh, demanded action against the boy while alleging that he was trying to convert the girl’s religion.

Tomar told ANI, “I have asked the police to take strict action as the Muslim boy was romancing with a Hindu girl in the house. He wanted to convert her religion. I also insist to take strict action against the landlords, who give rooms on rent without proper verification.”
