A group of lawyers and few other professions staged a protest on Anna Salai here on Tuesday demanding withdrawal of the conviction imposed on Justice C.S. Karnan.
However, their protest was cut short within a few minutes after the police intervened and arrested them as they had not acquired permission for the agitation near the Anna statue.
According to police, 47 persons, including lawyers, were arrested.
The arrested were, however, released on bail later in the evening.
