JNU students protest Highlights: Several JNU students were injured when Delhi Police baton-charged protestors as they marched towards Parliament on the first day of Winter Session on Monday demanding a total rollback of the hostel fee hike. Many students were detained but later released.
Earlier today, the protesting students sat at Safdurjung Tomb, demanding the release of those detained and a meeting with officials of the ministry. The top brass of Delhi police tried to initiate a dialogue with them and urged them to not take law into their hands.
For the past three weeks, students have been protesting inside the administration block of the university against the increase in hostel fee, even though JNU announced a rollback last Wednesday. The union said it will be a march to save public education and appeal to MPs to take up the cause.
