According to Andheri police, 24 activists including Prithiviraj Maske (north-west district NCP president) and Amol Matele (president of NCP students` wing), who were arrested yesterday, were produced before a holiday court which remanded them in judicial custody.
The accused applied for bail, but the court kept the hearing for tomorrow, making them to spend a night in Arthur Road jail.
The group allegedly entered the second floor of AAP office at Chakala and tore up and burnt the posters of Arvind Kejriwal around 2.30 PM yesterday. They also burnt Kejriwal`s effigy. Later, the NCP workers were held by Andheri police.
