Railway Exam violence: Khan sir urges students not to participate in Bihar bandh
New Delhi : A set of students have called for Bihar bandh on January 28 to protest against alleged irregularities in the Railway Recruitment Board's examination process. YouTuber Khan Sir, who is alleged of inciting the violent protests, has asked students to not participate in the Bihar bandh and stay calm.
He told students that this is not a right way to stand against the government.
Several students’ organisations, including the All India Students Association (AISA), have threatened a state-wide bandh on Friday to protest against alleged discrepancies in the Railway Recruitment Board's Non-Technical Popular Categories (RRB-NTPC) exam 2021.
Yesterday, Khan sir was booked for provoking students to protest against the government. An FIR was registered against him in Patna after agitating students who were detained by the police claimed he had a role to play in the violent protests.
The students claimed that they got motivation to indulge in violence after Khan Sir allegedly instigated students to agitate on the streets if the RRB-NTPC exams were not cancelled. His video on the subject had gone viral on social media.
Candidates were seen getting violent on the streets, some coaches of a train were also set on fire by the agitating students.
The Ministry of Railways has formed a five-member committee to examine the grievances of the protesting students.
