Expelled BJP leader from Uttar Pradesh Dayashankar Singh has been sent to 14-day judicial custody after he was arrested from Bihar's Buxar district on Friday morning. He was on the run after an FIR was filed against him for allegedly making derogatory remarks against BSP President Mayawati.

He was arrested by Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) team with the help of the district police from a house in Chinni Mill locality, Superintendent of Police Upendra Kumar Sharma told PTI.

Buxar is about 100 km from Patna on the border of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

Singh had gone underground after an FIR was registered against him on July 20 by UP police on a complaint by BSP leader Mewalal Gautam, alleging that Singh's remarks hurt the feelings of BSP workers and the Dalit community across the country.

The controversy over his remarks erupted so hard that Bharatiya Janata Party had to expel him from the party.
