Khushbu was nabbed while she was on her way to participate in the protest, which did not get police permission.
"When your journey is cut short by force, you know you are on right track. I question @AIADMKOfficial n #CM of TN @EPSTamilNadu avl, why we are denied our democratic right for a peaceful protest when other parties are given the permission to do the same? Why this partiality (sic)?" Khushbu tweeted.
"Or is @AIADMKOfficial govt aware that #VCK is capable of riots and goondaism and they fear the same?" she added.
Tamil Nadu BJP Women's wing has organised a state-wide protest against Thirumavalavan on Tuesday.
