Hundreds protest in India against arrest of rights activists

Uploaded: 6 months ago

NEW DELHI: About 1,000 people protested near India’s Parliament on Thursday demanding the immediate release of five prominent rights activists who were arrested for alleged Maoist links in a countrywide crackdown this week. The protesters warned that freedom and liberty would be endangered if people don’t resist such measures by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government. India’s top court on Wednesday granted some relief to the five activists, ordering that they be kept under house arrest instead of in police custody until it rules next week on a petition challenging their detentions.
