However, the activists of Students’ Congress were stopped by police in the midway at Sishu Bhawan Chhak following which a scuffle ensued between them and security personnel.
The protesters later staged ‘Dharna’ by sitting on the road wearing black badges and shouted slogans demanding re-evaluation of the CBSE answer sheets.
The activists also raised questions over the Government’s inaction in the ITER fake placement scam. Police held several leaders including National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) State president Itish Pradhan.
