Ballia (UP), Jul 19 (PTI) BJP workers staged a sit-in for nearly three hours at a police station here on Monday against the alleged assault on one of them by a sub-inspector, officials said.

Following a tussle between two groups over vehicle overtaking on Sunday night, four people were arrested, Revati police station incharge Yadvendra Pandey said.
