SP's Agra district president Wajid Nisar admitted that pro-Pakistan slogans were certainly raised during the rally, but claimed that some ‘outsiders had raised these slogans to tarnish the party's image’. 

Nisar said he had filed a complaint with the police and urged strict legal action against the culprits.

Uttar Pradesh police has taken cognisance of the incident and has initiated a probe.
