Former Army chief, AAP leaders overshadowed

Former Army chief General V K Singh and Aam Aadmi Party's Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas joined the protests at Rajpath and India Gate on Saturday, but their voices and presence were all but drowned in the melee. Students chanted slogans even as Singh spoke on a megaphone.

"The system needs to change to stop crimes like this. One needs to instil fear of the law and the police," Singh said.

Aam Aadmi Party sources said it was a conscious decision to keep participation in the protests low key so as not to "politicise" it.
