Uttar Pradesh Police on Tuesday beat up protesting Samajwadi Party (SP) activists, as they blocked roads in Bijnor district.
The SP activists demonstrated in Bijnor city against the state government run by Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
Police beat up the protesting activists with batons and detained many of them, while the rest fled the scene.
The police crackdown on the activists resulted in chaos on the highway around Bijnor.
Many buses and other vehicles plying on the highway were stranded, as they could not enter the city.
The SP was on a three-day-long protest between March 7 and 9 over corruption and misgovernance charges of the state government. (ANI)
