Praful Vora, an office-bearer of AAP, said policemen should be withdrawn from VIP security and deployed for law and order purpose.

"Sushilkumar Shinde, as Union home minister, has been a failure. He has no right to continue," Vora said.

Nearly 1,000 people participated in the protest in suburban Bandra, he claimed.

Meanwhile, Congress MP Priya Dutt also addressed a protest meeting in support of the victim at Carter Road here.

Vora said the AAP protesters wanted to participate in Priya Dutt's meeting and question what her party's government was doing in this regard.

"However, police did not allow us to meet her," he said.
