Kolkata: The BJP’s students wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad on Tuesday torched an effigy of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and demanded resignation of state education minister in protest against the killing of two students in Islampur last week allegedly in police firing.
It also demanded a CBI probe into the killings.
ABVP activists assembled outside Swami Vivekananda’s ancestral home in north Kolkata’s Simla street and marched to the Dharamtolla crossing, where they were stopped by the police.
Some ABVP workers were allegedly injured when the police tried to disperse the agitators.
The police forcibly dispersed the crowd.
