An agitation held by a student’s collective on Wednesday ( Oct 9) at the Arts Faculty of the Delhi University . Their demands included curfew-less nights for women .

The call by Pinjra Tod came after the group held an all night protest in the University on Monday and adding to that , they blocked traffic on the Mall Road because their talks with the proctor and deputy proctor of DU reportedly went into vain.
