Upset after they were allegedly ignored by SP's Lok Sabha candidate Sanjay Dutt, students of Lucknow University on Sunday pelted stones at his convoy in the varsity premises damaging some vehicles.

The incident took place this afternoon when Dutt was coming out from the bungalow of a professor, sources said.

The students wanted to have a glimpse of the actor. For the purpose, they gathered outside the bungalow and started raising slogans "Sanju Baba bahar aao" (Sajay please come out), they said.

However, Dutt along with SP leader Virendra Bhatia continued to hold discussions with the professor and did not come out.
Angry over it, when Dutt came out of the bungalow and was trying to leave the place in a haste, students threw stones on the vehicles damaging some of them.

Security personnel were also stated to be injured in the incident.

When asked about the incident, Bhatia tried to underplay it saying that some students pelted stones from the backside as they could not get autographs.

"Nothing major happened. Some students pelted four-five stones," Bhatia said denying that anyone was injured.

However, he accepted that there were two-three students who were also raising slogans and added that they might belong to some political party.

"We just wanted to see Dutt. He is contesting elections from Lucknow and he should meet us," Harish, a university student, said.
