Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad was detained in Hyderabad on Sunday ahead of a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act and the proposed National Register of Citizens, ANI reported. The police claimed that the protestors did not take permission for the demonstration.

On January 15, a court in Delhi had granted bail to Azad in the Daryaganj violence case. He had been arrested in December on charges of instigating violence in Old Delhi during protests against the citizenship law.

More details are awaited.
