Arvind Kejriwal, 5 others detained by police
Kejriwal and Gopal Rai were picked up from outside the Prime Minister`s residence while Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas were detained from outside 10 Janpath, the residence of the Congress chief. Sanjay Singh and another person were detained from outside Nitin Gadkari`s residence.
The detention came following the gathering of the activists near the residences of leaders as part of their gherao agitation on the coal block allocation issue.
A senior police official said all the six people were being taken to a makeshift jail in Baawana. A spokesperson for the activists said they had not violated prohibitory orders as only two persons had gathered at the spot.
Delhi police warned yesterday against staging a gherao at these places citing violation of prohibitory orders.
