The arrest of a top leader for alleged corruption sparked massive protests in India’s capital, Delhi, by members of the ruling party.

Manish Sisodia, Delhi’s deputy chief minister, was arrested on Sunday by a federal agency for alleged violations of the city’s liquor policy.

The allegations are denied by him and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Mr Sisodia was detained for five days by a court on Monday.

According to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Mr Sisodia was arrested in connection with the CBI’s investigation into Delhi’s liquor policy, which saw the opening of new alcohol shops, which were later closed after the Delhi government withdrew the scheme.
