JNU Students Clash With Police, Prevented From Marching To Parliament
The students were moving towards Parliament, where the Winter Session started on Monday.
The government imposed Section 144 near the Parliament and deployed over 1200 police personnel outside the JNU campus — in anticipation of the protest. Barricades have been put up to stop the students within 1 km radius from the varsity's gates. The students' protest against the increase in hostel fee is ongoing for the past three weeks, even as the university administration on Wednesday announced a partial rollback of the hike. The union had termed the decision an "eyewash".
