Some 18 students were detained on February 5 for protests against the delay in construction of the college, a situation that is quite new for the peace-loving Himalayan state in the country’s Northeast region. EastMojo dived deep into the issue to understand why students are so enraged and the administration so fearful of dissent. Watch our documentary below:
