Apart from that, a man was detained near the venue of the rally, who had several tear gas spray cans. “They had got prepared for their action, during which they sought to tear headpieces from policemen or to hurt them,” he said.
The city administration, in his words, issued no permission to hold the rally because its organizers had already been brought to administrative responsibility.
