Differently-abled students of Jawaharlal Nehru University on Wednesday protested at the Delhi Police Headquarters near ITO. The students, most of them visually challenged, were angered over police action during the protest by JNU students following fee hike row.


The agitating students reached police headquarters under the banner of the Visually Challenged Students' Forum and raised their demands. They also alleged that during the protest over fee hike, the police beat and abused the blind students too.

Ranveer Singh Krishnaiya, Special Commissioner (Law and Order), told IANS: "The students wanted to hand over a memorandum to the Commissioner of Police".

The police officials managed to convince the protesting student by assuring them of needful action on their demands.

"We have taken the memorandum from the students and sent it to the Commissioner," Krishnaiya said.

"Some of the demands from these students were related to the November 18 protests. They have also given us some supporting videos. All the things have been sent to the Police Commissioner," said DCP (Central District) Mandeep Singh Randhawa.IANS
