JAIPUR: Five people were detained for raising slogans against the amended citizenship law during a session at the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) here, police said. 

They were released following a warning to not repeat such act in future, the police said. 

 

A group of activists, holding a tambourine, shouted slogans against the new citizenship law, prime minister Narendra Modi, union home minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath during a session at the festival.

In a video, purportedly of the protest, which circulated on social media, the activists are seen shouting slogans like 'Modi-Shah ko ek jawab, inquilab zindabad', 'CAA down-down', 'Amit Shah ho barbad, Modi-Yogi murdabad' and 'Hum lekar rahege azadi'. 

Police teams at the spot took the activists outside the JLF premises where they continued shouting slogans.
