The students organised the sit-in programme protesting locking up of some of the female students by male BCL members in their residential hall on December 3.

The BCL men allegedly did it to bar them from participating a countrywide protest programme of medical technologists, our district correspondent reports quoting several female students of the institution.

A group of female student protesters also submitted a formal letter to the principal of the institute complaining about the incident of December 3 following which today’s attack took place which injured five of the students, our correspondent said.
