New Delhi: Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad has been arrested from Deoband in Uttar Pradesh, triggering a standoff between the police and his supporters who aren’t allowing the vehicle to move towards the police station.

As per initial reports, the Dalit leader wanted to leave for Delhi to attend events on Kanshi Ram’s birth anniversary on March 15, but was denied permission for the same.

Azad had last week announced that his outfit would support candidates who contest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union minister Smriti Irani in upcoming Lok Sabah elections. Azad had also questioned Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav over his father Mulayam Singh's remarks in Parliament wishing a second term for Modi.

Azad was released last year after being jailed under the National Security Act (NSA). He had been arrested from Himachal Pradesh in June 2017 in connection with the May 5 caste violence in which one person and 16 others were injured at Shabbirpur village in UP’s Saharanpur.
