New Delhi: President of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) Kanhaiya Kumar and his associates, who were protesting here on Friday over the alleged discrimination against the students in Bihar, were taken into custody by police.
A television footage showed they were loaded onto a bus outside the Bihar Bhawan here before being whisked away to a police station.
Kumar told scribes that they were protesting on several issues, including against a college principal who had put some students behind bars over a fake case.
He criticised the alleged police brutality against the students of Patna arts college and called for their immediate release from custody.
Kumar also demanded the government to hold BPSC and UPSC exams on different dates as they are scheduled on the same day at the moment.
The student leader has vowed to continue his protest till the Bihar government accepts their demands.
