New Delhi: About 500 protesters blocked the high-security Vijay Chowk access to Parliament House in New Delhi for about an hour today, forcing MPs arriving for the session to either turn back, or get off their vehicles and walk.
The protesters later courted arrest following which the cops cleared the area. They were taken to the Parliament Street Police Station.The police had barricaded the area, which also houses the President’s residence, Rashtrapati Bhawan, and important ministries, including the Prime Minister’s Office in the North and South Blocks.
Many Sikh protesters shouted slogans against Congress president Sonia Gandhi as they held protest outside her home last Thursday. She was away to Karnataka to campaign for the state elections.
The protesters say they will not stop their street protests till the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which prosecuted the case, appeals against the verdict in a higher court. The CBI has not decided on its course of action yet.
