The students affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had also staged a protest outside the office of the Vice Chancellor today to vent their ire over a programme describing the execution of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru as ‘judicial killing’.The incident was followed by the cultural evening organised at the Sabarmati Dhaba by ten students, who were earlier members of the Democratic Students’ Union (DSU). While the organisers originally got the permission to hold this event, it was withdrawn after the ABVP complained to the administration. The ABVP had called for a protest outside the 24’7 dhaba opposite the venue, against the ‘anti-national’ activity in the campus.The ABVP has also demanded that the ten students behind the event must be rusticated with immediate effect.
