Just day before yesterday, cops thrashed students
To recall, protests against the Citizenship Act spilled to the national capital this weekend when students of Jamia participated in the agitation.
However, on Sunday, they had to meet with police excesses and nearly 50 of them were detained.
Police's condemnable act sparked another massive protest wherein thousands gathered at headquarters in ITO. Subsequently, the detained students were released from Kalkaji and NFC stations.
For Jamia violence, police arrested 10, none are students
Ridiculed after the Jamia episode, Delhi Police claimed it was only doing its job and had the motive of pushing back protesters.
Subsequently, two FIRs pertaining to property damage were registered. Notably, 10 people, none of them students of Jamia, have been arrested.
Reportedly, three of the arrested men have criminal backgrounds and all of them would be handed over to the crime branch.
Meanwhile, on Jamia matter, SC didn't take any action
While Jamia's incident enraged students across India, Supreme Court said the petitioners should have approached high courts first.
To recall, senior lawyer Indira Jaising mentioned the matter yesterday, and the top court gave today's date.
After hearing the allegations of police brutality, Chief Justice of India SA Bobde commented, "We don't want to spend time knowing facts, you should go to courts below first."
