Surat: Some Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) workers were detained ahead of Monday's 'bandh' call given by the Sangh Parivar outfit to protest the gangrape of a teenager here, police said.
"Some VHP workers have been detained as a precautionary measure," Joint commissioner of police (JCP) Shamsher Singh said.
The VHP, however, alleged that police arrested 50 of its members, including city unit secretary Utkarsh Patel and RSS leader Suresh Master, last night.
AFTER EFFECT: The bandh is called as a protest against the gangrape of a teenager girl on June 12 in Surat.
The 'bandh' has been called in connection with the abduction and gangrape of a 17-year-old girl on June 12.
