New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi was whisked away by the police from Jantar Mantar in the heart of Delhi, where his Congress party supporters had gathered in large numbers to protest against the suicide of an army veteran.
The Congress vice president was ushered into a police jeep and taken away to the Tughlak Road police station. The police have said that it was done “for his safety”.
On Wednesday, Mr Gandhi was detained twice and was taken to multiple police stations in the capital as he tried to meet the family of Subedar Ram Kishen Grewal, who took poison on Tuesday over insufficient pension.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was also detained for hours.
