New Delhi: Delhi Police on Monday detained a group of AAP workers for taking out a candle march without permission in protest of the death of RTI activist Chandra Mohan Sharma in Greater Noida.
Around 21 AAP volunteers were detained when they were trying to take out the march from India Gate in the evening without necessary permissions, police said.

RTI activist Sharma was found dead in a burnt car near Eldeco Crossing in Greater Noida last Friday.

Sharma`s relatives alleged that he was murdered and he was getting threatening calls from the mafia whose deed he had exposed through RTI.

AAP claimed that police was reluctant to investigate the facts given by Sharma`s family.

"The party is shocked at the reluctance of police to investigate the case, particularly given the fact that the murdered activist had given a written complaint to the police on April 29 about the threats to his life which he was receiving from the land mafia," AAP had said in a statement last week.

The party has demanded a detailed investigation in the case.
