An FIR was lodged with Colonelganj police on against four students and 150 others.
On Saturday night, crude bombs were hurled outside a lodge located at Chhota Baghada. No one was injured.
Thousands of students from neighbouring districts or states, pursuing graduation/post graduation or preparing for competitive examinations, are residing in Chota Baghada, Bada Baghada and adjoining areas. The students are at loggerheads with landlords over the issue of rent and a series of protest marches were taken out.
