Raipur, April 14 (IANS) A case was registered Tuesday against 37 students, including about a dozen girls, of a national law university in Chhattisgarh for rioting and damaging public property, police said
Shaukat Ali, the station house officer of Civil Lines police station, told reporters that a first information report (FIR) had been registered against 37 students of the Raipur-based Hidayatullah National Law University including about a dozen girl students under various sections of the IPC dealing with rioting.
The students had Monday turned violent as part of their stir against university vice-chancellor, M.K. Srivastava, and damaged university property. They also held Srivastava hostage in his chamber and he was only freed only after police stormed the campus and forcibly removed protesters.
