Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad, who was detained in Hyderabad on Sunday while he was on his way to attend an anti-CAA, NRC, NPR protest, said that he was being taken to the airport to be sent back to Delhi.

Taking to Twitter, Azad said that dictatorship in Telangana was at its peak and that people's right to protest was being snatched.  

"First, our people were lathi-charged, then I was arrested, and now I'm being taken to the airport to be sent back to Delhi," tweeted Azad early Monday morning. 

Tagging the Telangana Chief Minister Office's official Twitter handle, Azad said that the Bahujan society would never forget this insult. 

"I'll be back soon," the Dalit leader added. 

Azad was in Hyderabad to address a gathering on Citizenship (Amendment) Act, National Register of Citizens and National Population Register. Police stated that they had not granted permission for the programme to be held.

Azad's detention comes days after he was released from Tihar prison in Delhi following his arrest for allegedly inciting people during an anti-CAA protest.
