There was a strong police deployment outside Sawant's residence and when the agitators refused to move away, they were detained.

The protestors were detained as a precautionary measure, a police official said.

“We @INCGoa condemn the arrest of @IYCGoa members who were protesting at the official residence of @BJP4Goa CM @DrPramodPSawant against rising inflation and unemployment in the state of #Goa. Is it crime to protest for the rights of youth and rising prices of essential commodities?” Congress' Goa media cell in-charge Amarnath Panjikar tweeted.
