New Delhi: Delhi Police detained 21 Madhesis, who were on their way to the Prime Minister's residence in Race Course Road here today to protest against the visit of Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli.

According to police, all the detained persons are Madhesis.

They were detained in the morning when they were marching towards the Prime Minister's residence.
