Students who were held for showing black flags to Yogi Adityanath on his visit to Lucknow University, were given bail on Tuesday.

The session court had given bail on security bond of Rs 40,000 and a personal bond each from the jailed students. The students will be released from jail on Wednesday.

Earlier, as Yogi's cavalcade moved towards the Lucknow university, where he was invited as the chief guest in a programme on Chhatrapati Shivaji, activists from Samajwadi Party Chatra Sabha and other student groups squatted on the road and showed black flags.

The local police had a tough time controlling the workers who also raised slogans against the chief minister, Governor Ram Naik, who is also the Chancellor of the university, and Lucknow district administration.

The activists alleged that a BJP programme was being held at the expense of the university and students.
