Saturday June 28, 2014 11:26 AM, IANS

Over 200 Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) aspirants staging a protest near prime minister's house against the changes made in their examination pattern were detained by police early Saturday.

These people were protesting here since Friday morning and wanted to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apprise him of their concerns.

"We will keep protesting till our demands are met,"Gurjinder Kaur, who came from G.T.B Nagar, north Delhi, told IANS. "We were earlier assured by BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu of paying attention to our demands and concerns. But nothing happened which forced us to come here and sit on protest."

On Saturday, at around 4.30 a.m., the police suddenly boarded them into buses and took them to the parliament street police station.

Women protesters accused police of brutality while pushing them into buses and taking to police station.

Police said that the protesters were asked to leave the area as it is a high security zone and near prime minister's residence 7, Race Course Road. The action was taken after several reminders to vacate the place.

On Friday, four metro stations, falling in central Delhi, had been closed for few hours due to the protests. Also, the intersection of Aurangzeb road and Tuglak road was closed since last evening due to the protest.
