Protest against quota turns violent in Allahabad
Students groups went on a rampage in the town’s Civil Lines area, accusing the government of altering the policy to favour a particular caste. The government firmly denied it.
Sources said the security personnel chased the students and resorted to lathi charge to disperse them. Students supporting the changes to the policy, however, condemned the violence and promised to take out a procession to express their support for the policy.
