Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav was detained by the Delhi Police during a farmers’ protest at Jantar Mantar last night.

Yogendra Yadav, who was marching towards the Prime Minister’s official 7 Race Course Road residence, has alleged that he was “brutally assaulted”.

“All of us, 96 in all, are now being arrested. But what’s the crime, I wonder,” Yogendra Yadav said in a series of tweets.

“Is standing peacefully with a Hal an offence? We were not obstructing traffic, were willing to cooperate with any reasonable condition,” he said, adding, “Why this brutal assault then?”

Meanwhile, AAP leader Dharamvir Gandhi has demanded the release of Yadav and the others.

“I demand Yogendra Yadav and others should be released who were detained last night,” said Gandhi.
