ABVP continues protest, demands action against Amnesty over event on Kashmir

The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has continued its protest for police action against those who it said raised “anti-India” slogans at an event organised by Amnesty International India in Bengaluru on August 13 to discuss human rights abuses in Kashmir.

On Thursday, the BJP’s student wing staged a protest near SJR College for Women in Rajajinagar. The protesters took out a procession from Magadi Road and converged in front of a shopping mall near the college.

Forming a human chain, they said the police were “suppressing” students’ voices by preventing them from participating in ABVP protests.

The protest badly affected traffic in Rajajinagar, Okalipuram and Magadi Road for some time. Senior police officers rushed to the spot and promised to take action against the sloganeers. The ABVP activists then called off the protest.

‘Rakhis’ tied

The ABVP’s women activists protested in front of a government college on Malleswaram 13th C ross. They tied ‘rakhis’ to policemen when they prevented them from entering the college.
