A court here on Tuesday directed the Delhi police to
submit a specific status report on the alleged police attacks on students
inside the campus of Jamia Millia Islamia University during protests against
the Citizenship Amendment Act on December
15 last year.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gurmohina Kaur asked the investigating officer to file the report by March 20.
The court also directed the police to come with their case diary on the next date of hearing to show what investigation has been done against the personnel who had allegedly barged into the university campus and lathi-charged the students.
The case is being investigated by the Delhi Police’s Crime Branch.
On December 15 last year, protests in the area against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) turned violent. Four DTC buses, 100 private vehicles and 10 police bikes were damaged. Police had said that they entered the campus while chasing the violent protesters who had taken shelter there, but the students had alleged they were brutally beaten up by the cops.
The court was hearing a plea filed by All India Students’
Association (AISA) secretary
