Local demand justice for gang-raped student

Soon after that, protests started at Chopra, 500 km north of Kolkata. Then, people moved along the National Highway 31 that connects Kolkata to Siliguri. From 2 PM to 5 PM, people continued to protest to demand justice for the gang-raped student and set at least 3 buses and police vehicles on fire.

In fact, the area seemed to be in ruins in the afternoon on July 19.

For two hours, police attempted to disperse the protesters. However, they were much stronger and resisted greatly.

At the end of it, cops used lathis and tear gas to make the protesters leave.
