Some BJP leaders, including former Haryana minister Manish Grover, were released after being held up inside a temple complex in Rohtak district's Kiloi for hours on Friday as several villagers and farmers staged a protest outside.
According to a police official, the incident occurred when Grover along with the local BJP leaders reached the temple complex as part of their plan to watch from there the live telecast of Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiling a statue of Adi Shankaracharya at the seer's rebuilt samadhi in Kedarnath.
The demonstrators allowed the leaders to leave the temple complex only in the evening after the district administration and police officials pacified them. Some reports had claimed that the protesters were demanding that Grover should apologise to the farmers for calling protesters as "jobless alcoholics." With input from agencies
