Sheikhpura: A group of Class 12 examinees Monday clashed with police, pelted stones on an examination centre and torched several vehicles, injuring eight policemen in Bihar`s Sheikhpura district.

The police fired several rounds in the air to restore order after the examinees at the Islamia College threw stones and engaged in a clash with the law-enforcers to protest against expulsion of some students for cheating.
Eight policemen, including Sheikhpura police station in-charge Rajendra Singh, were injured in the clash, Sub-Divisional Magistrate Manzoor Ali said.

The injured cops have been admitted to a hospital for treatment, the SDM said.
Earlier in the day, the authorities had expelled 64 examinees appearing in the examination for cheating, he said.
