§ Mr. PILCHER
asked the Under-secretary of State for India the Section of the Indian Penal Code under which Mr. Gandhi was arrested on 5th March?
§ Earl WINTERTON
Mr. Gandhi is to be prosecuted for abetment of an offence under Section 66 (11) of the Calcutta Police Act, namely, the unauthorised lighting of a bonfire in a public place. I have learned since last week that though Mr. Gandhi was not taken into custody, he was technically arrested at his residence in order to enable him to give recognisances.
