Around 20,000 youth from across the country were gathered at an army recruitment centre in Agra for the enrolment.

The recruitments were postponed due to unknown reasons after which a few enraged aspirants went on rampage and started pelting stones on vehicles.

Residents say the aspirants also torched an auto rickshaw and misbehaved with some girls.

According to the Police, they had to baton charge the mob to control the situation and save the army aspirants from the mob.

“We have made arrangements to send the aspirants back and the situation is under control now,” said Mukesh Meshram, District Collector.

“They (officials at recruitment centre) were sending us from one place to another and then they said the recruitment is postponed,” said Anil, an Army aspirant.(ANI)
