People's National Congress (PNC) deputy leader Ibrahim Shujau was taken into police custody last night regarding protests held by opposition coalition members on the occasion of Victory Day 2020.
PNC Council member Nabeel Zameel was also taken into custody during the protests last night.
Police said that they were taken into custody for violations of HPA guidelines against public gatherings despite being advised.
The opposition coalition had originally planned for a rally on the occasion of Victory Day. The rally named as “Badi Buraasfathi” was not permitted by authorities. The opposition coalition had also held similar protests after they were not permitted to hold the rally last year.
