NEW DELHI: Students of several universities - including Kolkata's Jadavpur University - raised slogans of 'Bharat Mata Se Azaadi', ‘Kashmir Maange Azaadi’, ‘Assam Maange Azaadi’ during a protest in Kolkata on Wednesday, reports Indian media.

The agitators, who were all students, carried a long banner that read, ‘Hindurashtra is Rapist’.

Students of several universities gathered outside Victoria Memorial to protest against BJP MP Swapan Dasgupta and Visva Bharati University vice chancellor Bidyut Chakraborty.

The students were protesting against the discussion on ‘Awakening Bharat Mata’. The students claimed that the BJP MP Swapan Dasgupta and Visva Bharati University VC Chakraborty were behind the attack on students of the varsity.

When they tried to enter the Victoria Memorial premises, they were prevented from entering by cops. The students stood outside the entrance of Victorial Memorial premises for around two hours and staged a protest outside the gates.
