Around 500 students from JNU formed a human chain, and blocked traffic near Vasant Vihar for around three hours on Tuesday morning. Students carried placards demanding immediate action against the perpetrators.
Shakeel Anjum, general secretary of the JNU Students' Union said, "We demand that the culprits be brought to justice. Women in the city have never felt more insecure. The least that the government and the police can do is ensure that the the criminals are nabbed."
"All the development that we keep harping about in the city is wasted if women feel unsafe at 9 pm in the heart of the city," a student said.
The JNU students were joined by citizens of the area during the protest. On Wednesday, students plan to protest outside the residence of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and also hold a candlelight vigil at 5 pm in India Gate.
About 25-30 members of All India Democratic Womens' Association (AIDWA) held placards and shouted slogans outside the Saket court on Tuesday where Ram Singh, the driver of the bus involved the rape case, was produced.
