Dehri-on Sone/Bhagalpur: A black flag
demonstration by a Muslim outfit was held on Tuesday at Bihar`s
Bhagalpur district where AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi
addressed Youth Congress leaders.

Over 100 members of the Muslim United Front took out a
procession carrying black flags from Tatarpur to Sandish area
in the district demanding implementation of the Sachar
Committee and Liberhan Commission reports.

The demonstrators, led by district president of the
organisation Abu Kaiser, were taken into custody near
Ghantaghar chowk in the district, police said.

Bhagalpur, they said.

The police used baton to disperse them, they added.
