The police resorted to lathi charge on the Samajwadi Party members in Allahabad while they protested against the Election Commission for raising the ban on Amit Shah from BJP while Azam Khan has still not got a clean chit.

The ban to contest in the Lok Sabha Elections, this year was put on both, Azam Khan and Amit Shah accusing them of emotionally influencing the public in their rallies. But Amit Shah was given permission to participate on Friday while Azam Khan was not. 

The party members were protesting against the decision of the Election Commission in Allahabad for not lifting the ban from Azam Khan, seeing the decision as biased and unfair.

The protest got out of control when one of the members attempted to commit suicide forcing the police to resort to lathi charge on the members.
