Er Rashid held in Delhi

Langate lawmaker Sheikh Abdul Rasheed was arrested Monday when he took out a protest rally from JK House in New Delhi to PM’s 10 Race Course residence.
A spokesman of Awami Ittihaad Party (AIP) said the party flew to New Delhi some days ago where it intended to hold a protest demonstration outside Parliament House. “But the BJP government denied us permission to hold protests against civilian killings outside Parliament House,” he said.
“We were asked to apply for permission to hold protests at Jantar Mantar which was given,” he said, “but today, we were told by a senior police officer that the permission was withdrawn.” He said the AIP activists led by Engineer Rasheed planned to hold the protests outside Prime Minister’s House.
“We took out the march from JK House Chanakya Puri but a heavy contingent of Delhi Police swung in to action and arrested Rashid along with his supporters,” he said while castigating the government for “unethical ban on peaceful protest”.
