Cops baton charge students protesting against UPPSC

The agitating students set fire to the vehicle of a Deputy Superintendent of Police and also indulged in heavy stone-pelting.

Trouble began at around noon when the students, who have been protesting the alleged corruption under the banner of ‘Bhrashtachar Mukti Morcha’ gathered in front of the Allahabad University campus and proceeded toward the UPPSC office, about a couple of kilometres away.

Heavy police deployment had been made at the varsity campus by the district administration.
The police personnel tried to prevent the agitators’ onward march and asked them to disperse.

This drew an angry response from the students, who allegedly pelted stones on the security personnel.

Police lathi-charged and used water cannons against the agitator even as some of the chafed students allegedly set fire to the official vehicle of a deputy SP parked nearby.
