“We have come here to demand justice for the Northeast student. All DU students are with the parents of Nido. Police should immediately arrest the culprits responsible for this brutal death. If police fail to do so, hundreds of students would launch a serious protest against the police,” said Amrish Ranjan Pandey, a spokesperson of NSUI.

In this situation, government needs to come up with effective steps for their security, he added.
