One person was today arrested for allegedly throwing a stone on the car of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in Banaskantha district's Dhanera town, when he was on a visit to the flood-hit areas of Gujarat. 

Banaskantha Superintendent of Police Niraj Badgujar identified the accused as Jayesh Darji alias Anil Rathod. Congress leaders claimed that he was a local office bearer of the BJP's youth outfit. 

"We have arrested one person named Jayesh Darji alias Anil Rathod for allegedly throwing a stone at the vehicle in which Gandhi was travelling. We arrested Darji after his name was given by Congress members during the course of investigation," Badgujar said. 

The Congress claimed that Darji was a BJP worker and was behind incident yesterday. "Jayesh Darji is the secretary of Banaskantha district BJP Yuva Morcha. He is the man who threw the stone at Rahul Gandhi. We have also submitted names of three more persons who conspired along with Darji to throw the stone at Rahul's vehicle," said district Congress general secretary, Prithviraj Kathwadia.
