Patidar leader Hardik Patel and Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia met Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) global working president Pravin Togadia in hospital.

Hardik Patel, who recently joined with the Congress Party to give a scare to the BJP in Gujarat state elections, said attempts are being made to silence Vishva Hindu Parishad leader Praveen Togadia.

City police formed four teams to locate Togadia, a "Z plus" category protectee. "It is a rumour that Togadia is in our custody which is not true at all", said Inspector General of Police, Bharatpur range, Alok Kumar Vashishtha. "He was in an unconscious state", said Dr. Rupkumar Agrawal at the hospital.

Togadia refuses to name person (s) behind alleged plot, claims IB is working against him and there's a conspiracy to get him tangled in a web of false cases.

The condition of VHP leader is stable now, a day after he was found in an unconscious state at a park in the city, as per sources.

As the word spread, hundreds of VHP workers rushed to the hospital last night.

Only three fragments of MH370 have been found on western Indian Ocean shores, including a two-metre wing part known as a flaperon. Systems created to automatically transmit the flight's position failed to work after this point, the report said.

The doctor said that he was brought around 9.20 pm. "I got another call saying that a team of Rajasthan police was looking for me and to avoid any untoward incident after my arrest I left my office (VHP headquarters at Paldi) and told a security guard that I will be back", he said. They added that there is a possibility of Togadia being victimised due to his strained relations with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Togadia narrated the story on his whereabouts on Monday.

He said it was not yet confirmed weather Togadia was arrested or not.

On a related note, the Ahmedabad Metropolitan court earlier in January had issued non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against Togadia and 38 others, including Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Daskroi (Ahmedabad), Babu Jamnadas Patel, in a 1996 attempt to murder case.

The VHP had yesterday claimed that Togadia was detained by Rajasthan police in connection with the case, but the latter denied this.

VHP leader Pravin Togadia remained incommunicado for a couple of hours on Monday, fearing threat to his life and kept a nation worrying about his wellbeing. Why were the summons not made available to me despite my presence in Ahmedabad? "When Gujarat court issued a warrant against me, the chief minister (Vijay Rupani) here, or home minster (Pradeepsinh Jadeja) were not aware about it", he said. Since some time I feel my voice is being gagged.
