NIFAA president Pritpal Singh Pannu led the protest march that comprised students and locals from Dyal Singh College and submitted a memorandum to sub-divisional magistrate Sushil Malik.

The protesters demanded a fair inquiry into the matter and said the guilty should be booked under criminal charges. They also wanted potholes in various localities repaired. None from the victim’s family was present at the protest march.
