Three students were beaten and arrested late Friday for showing black flags to BJP National President Amit Shah, during his visit to Allahabad.
Protesters including two girl students and one boy raised blacks flags and slogans in front of BJP leader Amit Shah’s cavalcade. As per the reports, ‘unemployment’ was the reason behind the trio holding protest against Amit Shah.
