Mangaluru, Nov 6, 2014 : Students from various colleges in Mangalore, under the aegis of the All College Students Union staged a demonstration in front of the DC office in the city on November 6, Thursday demanding a Special Police Cell to check the rising incidents of sexual assaults on students.
The protest was organised to also demand a speedy probe into the Nanditha death case of Thirthahalli and bring the culprits to book.
Dikshith V Shetty, President of the Union, who addressed the protestors urged the state government to consider the sexual crimes seriously.
