Mahura: Badaun police has arrested Rakesh Gupta, the alleged financier of the Mathura cult ‘Swadheen Bharat Subhash Sena’ and a close aide of its chief Ram Vriksha Yadav, who is the alleged mastermind behind the Mathura violence on June 2, reported TOI.

“Gupta, a businessman, was arrested near Atena Bridge at Badaun-Farrukhabad border in Badaun district on Friday. He has been handed over to Mathura police,” deputy inspector general (Bareilly Range) Ashutosh Kumar.

Gupta, who supplied arms to the group and funded the daily expenses of the cult’s ‘satyagrahis’, was also “interrogated by Intelligence Bureau sleuths since it is a matter of national security”, a senior police official said.
