Police on Wednesday detained and later released 60 - 70 students from near India Gate after they took part in a candle light vigil in support of Dalit student Rohith Vemula who committed suicide.
"The students were brought to the Tilak Marg police station around 6 p. m. and released around 8. 30. They were detained because they tried to march towards India Gate without permission, " said a police officer.
Vemula committed suicide in Hyderabad University on January 17 after being suspended following an alleged clash with an ABVP leader.
