The protesters demanded "immediate action against perpetrators of attack on Dalit women in Unnao" and medical attention to the third girl, who is on ventilator support.

"Ensure justice to the victims and survivor! Punish the perpetrators! Yogi Adityanath must resign," the student association said in a statement.

The protesters were taken to Mandir Marg police station.
