The protesters were detained minutes after they began their agitation near Kakade’s office by Deccan Police.

The protest was launched to demand full rehabilitation of the displaced villagers of New Kopare, whose lands were acquired by NDA way back in 1967. 

They were supposed to be rehabilitated in a building project led by Kakade Group in Warje-Malwadi. However, there are around 54 families that have not yet received housing, and 15 of them are fighting along with Yukrand for their houses.
