BJP leaders in Hyderabad were today arrested by the police for holding a demonstration to protest against the alleged attacks on cow vigilantes in the state without taking prior permission for the program.
The plans of the leaders, who had decided to hold a rally at Uppal, following a call by the party's vice-president NVSS Prabhakar, were however foiled by the police who reached the spot and arrested various party activists.
They took Prabhakar himself to the Nallakunta police station. Some other leaders of the saffron party were taken to the police stations at Uppal and Medipally.
The arrests led to considerable tension in the Uppal area, and the main road was filled with police personnel.
There has been considerable tension over the alleged targeting of cow vigilantes in the state.
Some days ago, activists of the right-wing outfit, the Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP), had today called on an injured cow vigilante, Sanjay, who was undergoing treatment at Secunderabad's Yashoda Hospital after allegedly being attacked by a group who was attempting to smuggle cows.
Telangana VHP president M Rama Raju had claimed that the perpetrators of the attack had tried to kill the vigilante for attempting to stop their vehicle in which cows were being "illegally transported" by mowing him down twice under the limits of the Uppal police station.
