The protesters marched towards Rajnath Singh's Ashoka Road residence in the heart of national capital, but were stopped by police a few hundred metres away.
Police used batons to chase away the protesters.
However, a spokesperson for the National Students' Union of India (NSUI) denied any involvement of the Congress-affiliated students' organisation in the protest.
The protest comes a day after Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Tuesday protested near Rahul Gandhi's residence demanding removal of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who has been accused of graft.
