In an unprecedented breach of security, ABVP activists ransacked high-security Vigyan Bhavan where a meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education chaired by HRD Minister Arjun Singh was being held. The activists smashed glasspanes, broke flower pots, antique paintings, threw stones and shouted slogans against the Singh in protest against the new National Curriculam Framework. Police arrived at the scene only 15 minutes after the protests and rounded up 56 activists, who have been remanded to judicial custody for 14 days.
