Peaceful Protest After the Incident
Pictures of peaceful protest outside the CUSAT Open Air Auditorium after the man handling incident. Later Joy Job Kulaveli and Sri. Chandramohankumar Registrar, CUSAT, demanded the protesters to leave the place, (in a very undemocratic and arrogant manner), and the protesters left peacefully.
