Tian Chua, as he is also known, was arrested after emerging from a town hall meeting with his constituents in Batu, Kuala Lumpur.
He tweeted his own arrest, saying that 20 police officers had come for him at the Kampung Batu Muda community hall, where he had just finished a public dialogue together with the mayor of Kuala Lumpur and Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
Tian Chua was last night asked to turn himself in at the Dang Wangi police district headquarters and was reportedly there for a brief period.
Today, after the town hall meeting, he tweeted: "Sebilangan 20 anggota polis menahan saya di Dewan Komuniti Kg Batu Muda, sebaik saja saya keluar dari town hall meeting."
(Some 20 police officers have arrested me at the Kg Batu Muda community hall, as soon as I came out from the town hall meeting.)
He also tweeted that according to police, he was being taken to the police remand centre in Jinjang to wait for an investigating officer.
Tian Chua, who is the Batu MP, was to have led protesters marching from Dataran Merdeka at the #KitaLawan rally this afternoon.
