Lucknow: Homeguard jawans demanding job regularisation clashed with police here today and damaged some vehicles, leading to a lathicharge to disperse them.






Thousands of jawans from all over the state gathered this morning at Jhulelal park here, leading to chaos in the city.

The situation took an ugly turn when a number of jawans, including some of their leaders, were detained by the police in a bid to control the situation, leading to resentment among the protestors, who clashed with police.

Armed with sticks, the jawans attacked policemen deployed there and chased them away, besides damaging a number of vehicles parked there.
