‘Police Raj’ at HCU last week: Picture gallery

I reached the protest site after the initial violence had taken place. Large number of students were staging a protest inside the premises of VC’s guesthouse.The students demanded the sacking of VC Appa Rao for his involvement in the institutional murder of Rohit Vemula. Earlier that morning Appa Rao resumed the post after ensuring support from the state and ABVP. The students were provoked by ABVP students who were already stationed in support of the VC because of which violence escalated and chaos prevailed.
