Nath ensured the aspirants that their demands will be fulfilled soon. He also informed that the recruitment files that are stuck will be soon processed, added the protestor. However, the minister went out of his residence without talking to any of the aspirants.
Despite maintaining peace during the protest, police, CRPF and TSR charged with canes on the people gathered. Three person were rushed to the hospital after suffering major injuries while two others received critical hand injuries, stated Bhowmik.
