Meanwhile in Delhi, ABVP activists staged a protest against Congress’ student outfit NSUI and demanded sacking of a leader accused of molesting a girl in Chhattisgarh. The activists alleged that they were “lathicharged” by police, an allegation that was denied by senior Delhi Police officers. “Around ten protesters were detained as they tried to jump over the barricade raised near NSUI office. No lathicharge happened,” said a senior officer. “This is shameful for the students’ politics. The women members of NSUI should support the victim,” ABVP leader Saurabh Sharma said. “We were lathi-charged resulting in injuries to 2-3 activists,” he alleged. The detained protesters were released from the Parliament Street police station later on. (With agency inputs)
