These people were protesting here since Friday morning and wanted to meet the Prime Minister to apprise him of their concerns.

"We will keep protesting till our demands are met. We were earlier assured by BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu of paying attention to our demands and concerns. But nothing happened which forced us to come here and sit on protest,"Gurjinder Kaur, who came from GTB Nagar, North Delhi, said.

On Saturday, at around 4.30 am, the police suddenly boarded them into buses and took them to the Parliament Street police station.

The women protesters accused police of brutality while pushing them into buses and taking to police station.

The police said that the protesters were asked to leave the area as it is a high security zone. The action was taken after several reminders to vacate the place.

On Friday, four metro stations, falling in central Delhi, had been closed for few hours due to the protests. Also, the intersection of Aurangzeb road and Tuglak road was closed since last evening due to the protest.
