The Congress' Delhi unit took out a candle march on the second anniversary of demonetisation on Friday to pray for people who "died while waiting in queues outside banks and ATMs" after the note ban was announced in 2016.
Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said the candle march was held to pray for "people who died in queues outside banks and ATMs, and to protest the impact of demonetisation on the common man and the country's economy".
Security forces forcibly took the protestors to police station in a bus.
The protesters wore masks and shouted slogans against the the BJP-led government at the Centre.
Amrish Ranjan Pandey, national spokesperson of the Youth Congress, said the protest was aimed at "highlighting the miseries of the nation since the last two years under the Modi regime".
"It is a protest against the 'failed' demonetisation of the Modi government wherein common people suffered its grave consequences," he said.
The withdrawal of the notes had led to a liquidity crunch and people stood in serpentine queues outside banks and ATMs to exchange old notes.
Opposition parties have criticised the exercise as "ill-advised" and "disastrous" for the country, but the government has maintained that the move helped increase the tax base and allowed greater formalisation of the economy.
