HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad police on Sunday detained Dalit leader and Bhim Army chief Chandrashekar Azad before he could attend an protest event against the Citizenship Amendment Act in the city, ANI reported.

The Langer Houz police, citing preventive detention laws, picked up the Dalit leader from the Mallepally area before he could address a meeting organised by the All India India Dalit-Muslim-Adivasi Progressive Front.

 

He was taken to the Bolaram police station at the other end of the city to avoid massing of protesters.

Azad had been released from detention barely a week and a half ago after being arrested in Delhi while at another protest against the new citizenship law.
