MRS. GANDHI AGAIN ARRESTED


Disregards Magistrate's Warning.

Mrs. Gandhi was arrested this afternoon at Nadiad Railway Station, 29-11-1933near here, while on her way to the village of Ras, where she announced she proposed to participate in civil disobedience. This makes the sixth time Mrs. Gandhi has been arrested within the last two years. She was to-day accompanied by the daughter of Mr. Vallabhbhai Patel, a leader of Congress and an intimate friend of Mr. Gandhi, who was also arrested.

The two were brought before the local magistrate, to whom they declared that they were on their way to Ras to conduct Congress propaganda. The magistrate thereupon served notices upon the two women requiring them not to participate in civil disobedience and to leave the Kaira district forthwith.

When they refused to comply with these orders Mrs. Gandhi and her companion were taken into custody.
