In a protest against massive fee hike in Punjab University courses, around 50 people including police officers, journalists and students were reported injured on Tuesday at Punjab University campus.
The Police Police took more than 50 students into custody and reportedly slapped sedition charge on those indulging in violence.
Police resorted to baton charge, used water cannons and tear-gas to disperse the agitators who gathered near the Vice Chancellor’s Office complex.
The protesting students started stone pelting at the police and damaged university property.
Teaching was affected in several departments on the Sector 14 campus of the university due to the protest shutdown called by the students.
