On Thursday, according to IBN reports, the protests took a political turn with students alleging that Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers attacked them late on Wednesday night.
According to students, the police entered the campus late on Tuesday night where students were staging a protest and dragged students out.
Allegedly, a female student in the varsity was dragged to the men's hostel and was sexually assaulted by a group of ten men after a college fest two weeks ago. The students have been demanding that the issue be probed by a panel which includes members from outside the university. Currently, the probe has no transparency, they allege.
The students have boycotted classes and are demanding the Vice Chancellor's (VC) resignation.
