The police lobbed tear gas shells and used water cannons to disperse the BJP activists who were on their way to the residence of the Prime Minister at 7, Race Course Road, in New Delhi on Tuesday.

The workers, holding BJP flags, marched towards the Prime Minister’s residence from Jantar Mantar where BJP state president G Kishan Reddy is on a fast.

In the melee, senior BJP leader N Indrasena Reddy and several workers were injured. The security forces, after waiting for some time for the demonstrators to leave the area, lobbed tear gas shells and when there was no impact, they used multi-directional water canons.

Later the police arrested the demonstrators and shifted them to a police station.

Kishan Reddy, taking serious exception to the use of force by the police against the party workers, said his threeday deeksha would continue and there was no going back on the party’s demand.
