The student whose identity is yet to be disclosed sustained severe injuries when his hand was smashed losing all his fingers. The cause of the injuries are however yet to be known although some rumors point to a teargas canister which they suspect was thrown at him.
Others allege that the injured was hit by a rubber bullet fired by police to disperse the striking students.
