Protesting against police brutality on railway job aspirants, the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) and the Left-affiliated All India Students' Association(AISA) on Friday held a demonstration outside the Rail Bhavan.

The protesters condemned the police's action and demanded withdrawal of the FIRs lodged against the protesting job aspirants.

On January 26, the Railways suspended its NTPC and Level 1 exams after the candidates went on a rampage in some states alleging irregularities in the process whilst minister Ashwini Vaishnaw urged them not to destroy public property and assured redressal of their grievances.

The national transporter had on Tuesday issued a general notice, warning its job aspirants that those found involved in vandalism and unlawful activities while protesting would be barred from ever getting recruited in the Railways. This came a day after protesters squatted on railway tracks in several places in Bihar.
