  • Indian police baton charge students over fee protests

Credit: PTI Jawaharlal Nehru University students try to get past a police barricade during a protest march towards Parliament on Monday.

"The massive police deployment and barricading at the gates of the JNU campus, which on the face of it appears to be only for the goal of preventing the students from taking out their planned march to Parliament", JNUTA said.

JNU students have been staging protests against the administration's decision to hike fees for hostel facilities.

As advised by Delhi Police, trains are not halting at Lok Kalyan Marg and entry/exit gates of the station have also been closed temporarily, the DMRC said in another tweet. One company comprises 70 to 80 personnel.

A senior official said police personnel are accompanying the agitating students during the march to ensure no untoward incident takes place. Subsequently, over 100 students broke through the barricades and tried to march towards New Delhi district area. The Mhrd is fooling students by forming committee. Why didn't the committee suspend fee hike till dialogue is happening? "We are demanding a rollback of the fee hike".
