NEW DELHI: Scores of volunteers of Chatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS), the students' wing of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), today staged a protest outside the BJP headquarters on Ashoka Road over the police assault on students.

The CYSS activists raised slogans against BJP and Delhi Police, which is under control of the Union Home Ministry, over the assault on students during a protest outside the RSS office over the death of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula at Hyderabad Central University.

During the protest, more than 100 students were taken into custody by police and moved to the Parliament Street police station. A section of Ashoka Road leading towards the the BJP office had to be closed for traffic for sometime.

Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal today hit out at Delhi Police alleging that it was being used as RSS and BJP's "private army" under a political dispensation that is at "war" with students across the country whereas senior party leader Sanjay Singh claimed the involvement of RSS and BJP behind the attack.
