Delhi police arrest 10 in connection with Jamia violence, none are students

The latest revelation has raised serious questions on Delhi Police’s action on Sunday as several Jamia students claimed that the police stormed the University campus.


New Delhi| Demonstrations are underway across the country over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Police arrested 10 people on Tuesday for allegedly spreading riots after violent protests at Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia University on Monday. Police say all of them are of criminal background. No students were arrested.

This has raised serious questions on Delhi Police’s action on University campus on Sunday. Several students claimed that the police stormed the University campus, washroom and attacked the students. Some have complained that the police barged into the Girls’ and Boys’ hostel and lathi-charged. Videos surfaced on the internet which showed that there was a commotion in the library following the sound of what appears to be firing of bullets.

Jamia VC Nazma Akhtar on Monday stood in support of the student. She questioned the police for entering the campus without permission. Delhi police had earlier denied the charges that any bullets were fired from their side. However, several reports have emerged of Jamia students sustaining bullet injuries.

Senior lawyer Indira Jaising in a petition in the Supreme Court had asked the court to initiate a judicial inquiry into the matter. However, CJI SA Bobade said that unless the rioting stops, the Supreme Court will not hear the matter.

On the other hand, in Assam, the administration has imposed a curfew for the last 3 days to stop the nuisance. However, citizens are regularly being exempted from it. The curfew was announced on Tuesday from 6 am to 8 pm.
