Grabbers from all quarters

Grabbers from all quarters

The plaque atop its tall, arch-like entrance says the British era building in Armanitola is Abdur Rahman Hall. But one gets puzzled to find young children chattering on its courtyard and women busy doing their household chores.

JnU students have been demonstrating to recover their dormitories for a long time. At least 7 teachers and 22 students were shot by cops when they demonstrated to...

The treatment of the students by the police was deplorable. The students for their part, however, shouldn't have occupied the street causing considerable public inconvenience. That too is unacceptable. We wonder whether the students were armed with lethal weapons and whether they had posed serious...
