Around 30 members of Bharat Swabhiman Sanghatana and Yuwa Swambhiman Manch were on Sunday detained during their protests in support of yoga guru Baba Ramdev.

The activists held demonstrations at a couple of places and tried to burn the effigy of a central minister, police said, adding that the protesters were later released.

Meanwhile, BJP leaders, led by city president Anil Sole, launched a 24-hour satyagraha here to express their solidarity with the yoga guru.

Similar protests and demonstrations were reported from neighbouring districts of Wardha, Chandrapur and Bhandara, police said.
