NEW DELHI: Delhi Police detained 21 Madhesis, who were on their way to the Prime Minister's residence in Race Course Road here today to protest against the visit of Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli.

According to police, all the detained persons are Madhesis. They were detained in the morning when they were marching towards the Prime Minister's residence.

In his first overseas trip after assuming charge of the top office, Oli arrived in New Delhi yesterday on a six-day visit during which he will hold extensive talks with the Indian leadership with a major focus on mending ties hit by issues relating to the Himalayan nation's new Constitution.

It is expected that India will ask Nepal to complete the "unfinished task" of making the Constitution more inclusive to address the concerns of the Madhesi community which share close family and cultural ties with Indians.
