Indian railway stations on fire as protests against military hiring plan intensify – video

Protesters in India’s eastern state of Bihar have damaged public property and ransacked offices in a railway station, expressing outrage at a new military recruitment plan and demanding that the government reverse course. One person was killed and more than a dozen have been injured in a series of protests against the new scheme in regions including Chennai and Secunderabad. 

The Agnipath scheme was designed to bring more people into the military on four-year contracts to lower the average age of India’s 1.38 million-strong armed forces
