New Delhi: Students from Delhi's prominent universities came together on Tuesday evening to lodge their protest against what they called were "unlawful detentions" of Anna Hazare and his supporters and pledged to join Wednesday's march to the Parliament.

Protesting under the banner of the All India Students Association, a number of students from Delhi University, Jamia Milia Islamia and Jawaharlal Nehru University gathered at JNU to protest the detentions of anti-corruption activists.

They were also protesting against the treatment meted out to students who showed black flags to Kapil Sibal at the Constitution Club.

The protest this evening came in addition to sporadic demonstrations that had erupted in Delhi University earlier in the day.

"We cannot sit quietly when unlawful detentions are being made in Delhi, and we have decided to answer Prashant Bhushan's call to the march to Parliament tomorrow," AISA General Secretary Ravi Rai said.

Earlier in the day, DU and Jamia students waved black flags when Sibal stood up to address a meeting on Lokpal Bill at the Constitution Club. They were physically evicted from the hall.

Students said they were assaulted after they protested against Sibal.
