Allahabad: Students’ protest turns violent

On Monday, hundreds of students went on a rampage against the changed reservation policy of the State Public Service Commission and attacked the commission building and vandalized over 100 public vehicles.

The protests came even as the Allahabad High Court asked the state government and the UPPSC to seek instructions on a petition challenging the policy which proposes caste-based quotas from the preliminary exams stage.
