Ghaziabad: Around 100 activists of the Hindu Raksha Dal staged a protest outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's house here demanding withdrawal of police cases against them.

A member of the Hindu group said its members had been arrested over the Jan 8 attack on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) office here because of a police complaint filed by the AAP.

The protesters demanded the immediate withdrawal of the case.

"Certain charges levelled against us are false," a spokesman for the group said.

The activists gathered outside Kejriwal's residence around 9 a.m. and said they wanted to meet him. But security personnel did not let them in.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal, who came out of the apartment complex in his car to go to Delhi, was intercepted by the demonstrators shouting slogans against the AAP. Police used force to let Kejriwal proceed.
