Students accuse the army and police of raiding their halls of residences and beating whoever they found in addition to destroying their property.
The guild vice president Judith Nalukwago told journalists that some students are in the university hospital while others have been admitted to private hospitals outside.
She condemned the brutalization of the students, breaking of halls of residences by security operatives who also arrested several of their colleagues.
The students are now demanding the release of their colleagues.
However, the army dismissed reports as fake news.
