Aurangabad, Sept 15:

The police arrested the protesters and took them to the Kranti Chowk police station. Bhaurao Deshmukh, Raju Shinde, Sameer Rajurkar, Shivaji Dandge, Rajesh Mehta, Anil Makariye, Govind Kendre, Jalinder Shendge, Dr Ram Budhwant, Amruta Palodkar and other activists were present.
