The Uttar Pradesh government has invoked the National Security Act (NSA) against president of the Peace Party, Dr Ayub. He will not get bail for next 12 months.
The case pertains to issuing an advertisement with derogatory content in a newspaper, following which he was arrested from Gorakhpur on August 1.
A complaint was registered at the Hazratganj police station in Lucknow and is in the jail now.
Ayub was the founder of the Peace Party and was elected to the Vidhan Sabha in 2012.
