Trinamool Congress on Tuesday claimed that its spokesperson Saket Gokhale has been arrested by Gujarat Police over a tweet relating to Morbi bridge collapse.

It's a "public vendatta" by BJP, claimed TMC.

Derek O' Brien, TMC leader tweeted that TMC national spokesperson Saket Gokhale was arrested by Gujarat police.

Though there is no clarity to the tweet over which the arrest took place, the government's fact-check unit had recently pointed out that Gokhale's tweet on RTI revealing Modi's visit to Morbi for a few hours cost Rs 30 crore with a newspaper clipping was fake.

Gokhale took a flight at 9 pm from New Delhi to Jaipur on Monday. When he landed, the Gujarat Police was at the airport in Rajasthan waiting for him and picked him up.

At 2 am on Tuesday, Gokhale called his mother and told her that the police were taking him to Ahmedabad and he would reach that city by noon, O'Brien claimed.
