Students protest in Jadavpur University campus

In the early hours of Thursday, the police entered Jadavpur University campus in south Kolkata on the orders of interim Vice-Chancellor Abhijit Chakrabarti to “rescue” him. He was gheraoed by the students for about 10 hours before he called the police. The police shoved and dragged the students out of the main gate of the University’s administrative building. Later the students demonstrated outside the local police station. Photo: Ronny Sen

The campus turned into a huge canvas from Thursday with sketches, posters and protest songs. The top favourite of the media and the onlookers was a neat sketch of the Vice-Chancellor where he’s seen threatening the students. But he denied threatening the students. Photo: Sushanta Patranabis
On Friday, University students took their protest outside the campus demanding the resignation of the Vice-Chancellor and an “independent panel” to probe the molestation of a student within the campus on August 28, which triggered the impasse. Photo: Sushanta Patranabis
