The Delhi Police detained BJP leaders Kapil Mishra and Tajinder Bagga for staging a protest, seeking the release of Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, at Rajghat on Sunday morning.

Goswami was arrested in an abetment to suicide case registered against him in May 2018 earlier this week. The Bombay High Court is slated to pronounce its order on the interim bail application filed by the journalist at 3 pm on Monday.

According to the police, Mishra and Bagga held a dharna near the Mahatma Gandhi memorial along with a few party members around 9 am on Sunday.

Besides the duo, 3-4 protesters were also detained and taken to Rajender Nagar police station, a senior police officer said.

Bagga and Mishra took to Twitter to say that they were “arrested” for protesting at Rajghat.

“We told them to conduct a protest at a designated spot and tried to remove them but they didn’t listen to us. They violated the government’s orders, (section 144) so we detained them,” the officer said.
