NEW DELHI: AAP's Delhi Cantonment MLA Surender Singh was today detained by the police while protesting a demolition drive by Cantonment Board.

According to Singh, the authorities were undertaking a demolition drive in the noon without giving prior notice.

"They were trying to seal houses in the Delhi Cantt areas under the guise of cleanliness drive. They were given no notice before the demolition of few houses. These people have been residing in the area for the last many decades.

"In fact, there are five villages in the area and the market place was set up to cater the cantonment area," Singh, who was released later, said.
