The protesters are moving towards Baghramyan Avenue where police forces are deployed.

Members of the “No to Plunder” initiative marched to president's residence on Monday in a protest against hike in electricity prices. The police, however, blocked Baghramian Avenue, and subsequently, a sit-in was staged on the avenue.

On early Tuesday morning, the police dispersed the demonstration by using water cannon, and detained many activists and journalists. As a result of the clash, eighteen people sought medical assistance in hospitals, and 237 people were detained. A criminal case on charges of hooliganism has been launched.
