Belgaum: The Belgaum taluk unit of the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti staged dharna in front of office of Deputy Commissioner here on Saturday protesting against the alleged harassment of its activists by police.

The dharna was led by Mayor Vijay Pandurang More, MES legislator Manohar Kinekar and former MES MLAs B.I. Patil and N.G. Tarale.

They urged the Deputy Commissioner to stop the "indiscriminate" arrest and harassment of Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti workers and withdraw cases against those who have been arrested by the police.
