New Delhi: Around 150 members of the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Youth Wing protested near External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's residence in New Delhi demanding her resignation for helping former IPL chief Lalit Modi with travel documents, officials said.
The protesters, headed by AAP's Youth Wing Delhi president Ankush Garg, gathered outside the minister's house in New Delhi area around 10 a.m. and raised slogans demanding her resignation for helping Modi procure documents to travel to Portugal last year for his cancer-stricken wife's treatment.
Police said they had deputed adequate force and would detain the protesters if they try to break law and order.
"As the protest is peaceful as of now, we are trying to negotiate with the protesters to stop their agitation. However, if needed, they will be detained," a police officer said.
