Mumbai, Jul 10 (PTI) Some supporters of independent MLA Bachchu Kadu were detained on Wednesday after they protested near Mantralaya in south Mumbai against online gaming and gambling, an official said.

Kadu, who heads the Prahar Janshakti Paksh, and his supporters assembled near the Mahatma Gandhi at the state secretariat building in the morning.

They had brought placards and banners demanding a ban on online gaming and gambling through mobile apps.

As the MLA, who represents the Achalpur assembly seat in Maharashtra's Amravati district, started his agitation, police rushed to the spot and urged them to protest at Azad Maidan near Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.

The MLA then went to Vidhan Bhavan as the monsoon session was underway, the official said.

However, his supporters kept protesting, following which they were detained and taken to the Marine Drive police station, he said. PTI DC NR
