“We have detained around 50-55 Congress workers, including Kalka MLA Pardeep Chaudhary,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Brijendra Kumar Yadav told IANS.
As per the senior official, the workers were coming in different cars and were stopped by the police.
“I have been detained by the police. I wanted to join my party members at the Jantar Mantar,” Chaudhary said while speaking to IANS. He said that currently he has been kept at the Narela police station.
