JABALPUR: Peeved at the attacks on Indian students in Australia, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists on Saturday protested and ransacked the Centre of Australian Unified Pathway Programme (AUPP) at Mahanada area here, police said.

Police did mild cane charge to disperse ABVP activists and arrested eight of them under section 151 (arrest to prevent commission of cognizable offences) of CrPC.

“We resorted to mild cane charge after the protesters stormed into the centre of AUPP and broke furniture and glasses, and arrested eight of them,” police said.

ABVP state secretary Abhilash Pandey said that police rained lathis on the students protesting peacefully, adding that ten protesters have been injured in the police’s act.

He said that after doing courses of AUPP, the Indian students were going to Australia where they were facing violent racial attacks.

Pandey said the ABVP will demand action against the policemen responsible for the cane charge.
