NYC lady volunteers beaten by policeThe protest sit in of National Youth Corps (NYC) volunteers on Wednesday took an ugly turn when some of the protesters fainted after police tried to arrest them. The volunteers had a scuffle with police cops for some time and authorities had to rush lady police personnel to disperse the women volunteers. Some lady police personnel used lathis when the protesting women tried to sit on the busy Residency road as a mark of protest against what they call ‘police high handedness.’

Police detained dozens of NYC volunteers after they held a protest demonstration and refused to disperse.

Dozens of NYC volunteers including girls appeared at the Press Enclave here and staged a protest sit in against the government’s “indifferent attitude”.

“Our every attempt to protest is suppressed. Be it secretariat gherao or a march to Raj Bhawan everything is being stopped by police,” said a protester.

“During 2010 summer unrest, when anti-India protests were held, the government tactfully engaged eight thousand Kashmiri youth as NYC to prevent them from taking part in stone pelting,”he added. Once the protests stopped we were left half way. Government exploited us,” he said.
