At least 15 university students were injured and hospitalised after police used water canons to disperse protesting students who had gathered opposite the Health Ministry today.
The police also baton charged to disperse the crowd as they forcefully entered into the Health Ministry premises on Wednesday afternoon.
A group of about 1000 students had engaged in the protest which was organized against the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine.
The Fort Magistrate earlier today too issued an order stating that scheduled anti-SAITAM protest should be held without creating unnecessary public nuisance and without obstructing the traffic. The university students were also banned from forcefully entering into the premises of the Presidential Secretariat Office.
