Delhi Police detains JNU students marching towards Rashtrapati Bhavan
New Delhi : Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students were picked up by the Delhi police officials and were detained as their tried to carry out a protest march towards Rashtrapati Bhavan after their failed meeting with the HRD ministry officials to carry out discussions on recent violence in the university campus.
The scene came to picture after JNU students' union president Aishe Ghosh gave a call for march towards the President of India's residence after a meeting between the students union and HRD ministry did not turn up satisfactory.
The delegation who had met the HRD Ministry officials had raised the demands of removal of vice chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar from his post.
Soon after the meeting was concluded, the student union JNUSU president gave a march call towards Rashtrapati Bhavan before the students were scattered from the spot.
Responding to the action, the police opted for a mild force to stop the mob from their actions. Firstly, the cops used loudspeakers to warn the protesters and stop them from taking part in the march, but after their continuous denial and moving ahead towards the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the cops started detaining them.
Meanwhile, some of the students were seen standing outside the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station where they were seen raising slogans against the Delhi police and their actions against the protesters.
