A large number of Jat community members protesting for reservation in jobs attempted to storm the Commonwealth Games office in New Delhi on Wednesday but were prevented by the police.

The protestors marched towards the Games' headquarters from their protest site, a few hundred metres away at Jantar Mantar, police said.

However, due to a large number of police personnel deployed near the protest site the protestors were prevented from reaching the office.

The Jat Mahasabha, which is spearheading the protest, threatened that they will try everything possible to disrupt the sporting extravaganza if their demand was not met with.
