The protesters were detained when they reached Kilazfargarh village on the Rohtak border. They did not have requisite permission, the police said.

"Reservation is our right," the leader of the protesters, Devi Das, said before being taken into custody.

"We will not rest until we get what we deserve. We are staging a peaceful protest. Despite that, the police have detained us," he said.

The group is staging a sit-in in Jind for the last 171 days.

Sub Divisional Magistrate, Julana, Shiv Kumar said the protesters didn't have permission.

"If they had permission, we would have allowed them to enter Rohtak," Kumar said.
