Students beat up policemen in Ghaziabad
Lucknow: Three policemen, including a station in-charge, were injured in Ghaziabad Monday when angry college students attacked a police station and burnt it down.
According to state home department officials, violence broke out in Muradnagar, about 470 km from here, when angry students of the Gandhi Inter College, protesting against the sacking of a school teacher, vented their ire on the police and set the Rawli police station on fire.
"Students were protesting against the sacking of a teacher named Arvind Dubey, and they went to the police station to seek help to bring pressure on the management to reinstate the teacher. Instead of helping them, the policemen just shooed them away," an official told a news agency, explaining that the students went berserk and thrashed policemen.
Senior police and district officials rushed to the spot to contain the violence, an official said.
