The students were part of a march on Thursday to the HRD Ministry.

The march by hundreds of JNU students was stopped when they tried to go towards Rashtrapati Bhavan demanding JNU Vice Chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar sacking over the January 5 violence in the campus.

“A case has been registered for violation of Section 144 and obstruction to government duty in Connaught Place,” a senior police officer said.
