A group of people torched a bus in Uttar Pradesh's Allahabad on Monday in a protest against the death of a law student of Allahabad University. 26-year-old Dilip Saroj succumbed to his injuries on Sunday after being thrashed by a group of people during an argument in Allahabad's Katra Bazar on Saturday.
Angry varsity students aligned to the Samajwadi Yuvjan Sabha (SYS) and the All India Students' Association (AISA) took out a protest march on Monday and raised anti-government and anti-police slogans.
Demanding immediate arrest of the culprits, the students also sought adequate compensation for the deceased student's family. Saroj was a LLB 2nd year student and hailed from Pratapgarh.
The Uttar Pradesh Police on Sunday arrested the main accused in the case after a video of the incident went viral on social media. The police also identified Vijay Shankar, a Train Ticket Examiner (TTE) as one of the attackers.
