Aam Aadmi Party's leader Arvind Kejriwal was arrested on May 21. He was sent to judicial custody when he refused to submit a bail amount of Rs 10,000 in the case filed by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari in February.
He was taken to Tihar jail. While Congress termed Kejriwals act, a drama, there was a lot of chaos outside where supporters and colleagues gathered in protest. Clashes broke out between AAP supporters and Delhi Police. Around 70-80 workers including MLAs and other senior leaders were arrested from outside Tihar jail. Police had to imposed section 144 outside the jail premises. Senior leaders like Yogendra Yadav, Manish Sisodia were dragged by the police personnel. Yogendra Yadav spent night in Jail for peacefully protesting against the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal.
At the same time AAP supporters showed their support over social media websites like Twitter."IStandWithKejriwal" has been trending all over Twitter as Kejriwal continues to be in jail.
