New Delhi:

The Punjab Police used water cannons to disperse workers of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), protesting against the increase in power tariff in the state, outside the residence of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh. MP Bhagwant Mann, who was leading the AAP protest against the Punjab government was detained.

The police used water cannons to stop party leaders including MP Bhagwant Mann, MLAs Harpal Singh Cheema, Kultar Singh Sandhwan and workers from moving towards the residence of the Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. According to the reports, the AAP workers planned to 'gherao' the official residence of Amarinder.

The AAP workers clashed with police after they were stopped from heading towards Capt Amarinder Singh's official residence with the police using water cannons. Police, however, had barricaded the road with the deployment of a huge force leading to the Chief Minister's residence. When the protesters started marching towards the residence, they were stopped by the police.
