In a communication, the Home Ministry told the West Bengal government to send a report detailing the circumstances leading to the students protests, their acts and the issues raised during the march, official sources said.

Jadavpur University students staged a protest march inside the campus last evening. Slogans were allegedly raised in favour of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, who was hanged in Tihar in 2013, and Ishrat Jahan, the alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba operative gunned down in an alleged fake encounter in Gujarat in June 2004.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University students union president was arrested on sedition charges for allegedly raising anti-national slogans in the university campus recently.
