New Delhi: Scores of BJP supporters were stopped by police near the Parliament House on Saturday when they tried to take out a candlelight march towards India Gate to protest the rape of a five-year-old girl here.
Some of the BJP supporters tried to break barricades near Imtiaz Khan Marg, just 200 metres from the Parliament House, but were prevented by police.

Police arrested a number of protesters, including Delhi BJP Chief Vijay Goel, but later released them. The protesters started the march from Talkatora stadium.

Demonstrations were also held at AIIMS where the girl is undergoing treatment and outside the Gandhi Nagar police station where policemen allegedly showed laxity in dealing with the case.
