“We organised a rally to spread the ideals and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. It was Gandhi Vichar Sandesh Padyatra, not a protest against anyone. But police thrashed the activists with lathis and tortured them,” Youth Congress national secretary Dr Smruti Ranjan Lenka told reporters.

Despite sending an application much in advance, the rally was denied permission, he claimed. According to the sources, police had set up a barricade near Agartala Circuit House to stop the rally.
