The right wing students' organisation took out the rally from Gariahat area in south Kolkata to protest against the 19 September attack on Union Minister Babul Supriyo on the Jadavpur University campus.

As soon as the ABVP activists reached Jodhpur Park, around 2 kilometres away, police stopped them by putting up barricades on the road, the sources said.

The protesters then pelted stones at the police officers, tried to break the barricades, while raising slogans against the Trinamool Congress  (TMC) government, they added.

Supriyo was on Thursday heckled and held up for several hours by the students of Jadavpur University, where he had gone to attend a seminar organised by the ABVP.
