Students from different colleges and schools of the twin cities of Ambala staged a protest against the Delhi bus gang rape. Thousands of students gathered at the Congress Bhawan Chowk, Ambala Cantonment and Polytechnic Chowk, Ambala City in the morning and staged a peaceful protest. The protest started with a signature campaign in which thousands of persons wrote comments and signed the pledge to prevent crimes against women. Agitated students marched through the main bazaars and shouted slogans against the gang rape accused as well as the Delhi Police. The students holding posters and banners demanded death penalty for the accused. They also prayed for the victim who is fighting for her life in Safdarjung hospital in Delhi. The protesting students were vocal in their opinion that death is the only punishment for the perpetrators of this heinous crime. The protest rally lasted for three hours. The students waved posters and placards that read statements like 'Niyat Teri Kharab, Parde Me Main Rahu?" and "Shame, Shame - rape accused hang till death".
"We need to stand for women's respect and dignity. No men in our society should be given the right to outrage the modesty of any women in our society," said Pankaj Dogra, president of the Indian National Students organization.
