New Delhi– Delhi Police on Tuesday evening detained Congress leaders and workers after they gathered at Delhi’s Red Fort for ‘Loktantra Bachao Mashaal Shanti March’ to Town Hall in Chandani Chowk.
According to Congress, senior party leader and AICC in-charge for Madhya Pradesh JP Agarwal and party workers were detained by Delhi Police from Jain Mandir-Gauri Shankar Mandir near Red Fort.
“Congress leaders were to participate in ‘Loktantra Bachao Mashal Shanti March’ at Red Fort from 7.00 p.m.,” it said.
