Poll strategist Prashant Kishor’s IPAC team has allegedly been detained in Tripura, where they had gone to do some groundwork for Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress.
The Tripura Police have detained them at the hotel where they were staying. The police have been camping at the hotel lobby since morning, sources in the IPAC have said.
Twenty-two IPAC employees were in Agartala for the survey.
This morning, the police allegedly stopped the team from leaving their hotel, saying they have violated Covid norms.
Meanwhile, sources in the IPAC said the team had all the necessary Covid papers.
