New Delhi, May 23: About 30 activists of the BJP's youth wing protesting the UPA-II government's corruption scandals were detained when they were trying to march towards Connaught Place in central Delhi.




Hundreds of activists of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) gathered near Ashoka Road and wanted to march towards Connaught Place but were restrained by police personnel.

The protesters managed to break through a barricade, leading to the Delhi Police using water cannons.

"We have detained about 30 protesters. Other protesters were dispersed using water cannons. Those arrested were taken in a bus to Parliament Street police station," a senior police official told IANS.
