Massive protests have been held in India’s Uttar Pradesh state after the body of a parliamentary candidate was found hanging from a banyan tree.


Bahadur Sonkar, 35, was a candidate of the Indian Justice Party in Jaunpur, 50km west of the city of Varanasi.

Police used sticks to beat back the crowd and prevented protesters from going near the body for several hours.

Mr Sonkar had been campaigning in the area. His family has blamed a rival candidate for killing him.

The body has now been taken down and is undergoing a post-mortem examination. >>>
