GWALIOR: Four persons were taken in custody during a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) here on Friday, the police said.
Additional Superintendent of Police Satyendra Tomar said some people gathered in Fulbagh Square in the afternoon, holding banners and placards against the CAA and the National Register of Citizens without a permission for holding a protest.
They also burnt an effigy, he said.
Four of them were detained "to maintain peace in the area" and for holding protest without permission, he said, adding that they were being questioned.
