Four people were arrested in Agra on Monday after they waved saffron flags at the Taj Mahal complex, police said.

The CISF personnel deployed at the historic place apprehended them after which they were handed over to police.

The video of the men waving saffron flags went viral on social media. The viral video shows two men holding up flags and facing the camera in a group while another person records a video.
