Five persons, including two members of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Madhya Pradesh, were arrested by the police here on Wednesday for protesting over the issue of breach in the Karam Dam in Dhar district and alleging corruption in execution of the project, an official said.
They were arrested and booked under Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) section 188 (disobedience to the public servant order), he said.
Among the arrested persons are state AAP spokespersons Hemant Joshi and Sanjeev Vaidya, the official said.
