The BJP leaders and workers were protesting against the attacks on the party by TMC goons after the West Bengal assembly elections.
After Khan and BJP leaders Kalyan Choubey and Mina Devi Purohit were detained for assembling at Rani Rasmoni Avenue, while Ghosh and Adhikari sat on a dharna at the foot of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi on nearby Mayo Road.
