New Delhi: Hundreds of JNU students attempting to march towards Rashtrapati Bhawan over the fee hike issue were lathi-charged by police for the second time in the day on Monday as they scuffled with police when JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was pushed off a police Gypsy vehicle.
In the evening, the police rained blows on the students with their canes after the agitating students scuffled with police when Aishe Ghosh was pushed off from a police Gypsy when she was addressing the students.
The media was also stopped from taking videos of students being dragged Ainside PCR vans.
Video journalists were manhandled and warned not to cover the incident or “else something will happen”.
The crowd dispersed after the police warning and action. “Students have been detained earlier, we were detained earlier, but this is illegal. We were dragged, punched, kicked and thrashed with lathis, before they threw several agitating students in PCR vans,” Aishe Ghosh told the media. (IANS)
