Delhi: Rahul Gandhi Among Top Congress Leaders Detained at Vijay Chowk

NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Tuesday detained former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and several party MPs at Vijay Chowk after they staged a protest against the ED's questioning of Sonia Gandhi.

Taking to the micro-blogging site Twitter, Rahul gandhi wrote, "तानाशाही देखिए, शांतिपूर्ण प्रदर्शन नहीं कर सकते, महंगाई और बेरोज़गारी पर चर्चा नहीं कर सकते। पुलिस और एजेंसियों का दुरूपयोग करके, हमें गिरफ़्तार करके भी, कभी चुप नहीं करा पाओगे। 'सत्य' ही इस तानाशाही का अंत करेगा।"

Notably, Gandhi and the other Congress MPs had gathered at Vijay Chowk to march towards the Rashtrapati Bhavan to draw the President's attention to the government's alleged misuse of agencies but were stopped by police.

Gandhi was put in a police bus and was taken to Parliament Street police station. Other Congress MPs at the Vijay Chowk protest site were detained and taken away in separate police buses.

The Congress MPs had earlier gathered at Parliament to decide on the party's strategy as Sonia Gandhi appeared before the Enforcement Directorate for questioning in a money laundering case pertaining to the National Herald newspaper, for the second time.

Rahul Gandhi has already appeared before the probe agency for questioning in the same case.
