A large number of protesters formed a 3-km long human chain against the arrest of 83-year-old social activist Father Stan Swamy from Jharkhand by the National Investigation Agency.

The protesters allege that the government has falsely detained Father Stan Swamy by making false allegations in the Bhima Koregaon case. On Monday evening, the human chain from Bengaluru’s Brigade Road to Shantinagar Bus Depot was formed under the leadership of Dr Peter Machado, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Bangalore. Dr Peter Machado, who was involved in the demonstration, said that all the protesters urged the government that the aged priest be released immediately. The government should encourage Stan Swamy as he was working under the Constitution and for the poor. Ultimately, the poor are our backbone”.
