Umesh alias Lukka Nagar, in his late 20s, was held from his house in Dankaur area of Gautam Buddh Nagar district, they said.
"Pandit had objected to a vulgar dance show and a qawwali programme during the Drona fair held in the district last week.
"But on Sunday night, Nagar along with his four aides reached the house of Pandit brandishing a pistol and threatened to kill him," the SHO said citing the complaint.
The police then lodged a first information report on the complaint from Pandit under Indian Penal Code sections 307 (attempt to murder), 452 (house-tresspass), 147, 148 and 149 -- all three related to multiple people rioting with deadly armed weapons.
"Nagar was arrested from his house Monday morning, while police are searching for his other aides based on inputs from him," the SHO said.
