Over 30 students of Jamia Millia Islamia University (JMI) have been allegedly injured in a clash with the Delhi police after they were stopped from carrying on an anti-Citizenship Amendment Act march towards the Parliament on Monday. 

Led by the Jamia Coordination Committeed (JCC), a group of JMI students and alumni had planned to march from Gate no. 7 to the Parliament against the CAA and National Register of Citizens (NRC). 

Reportedly, the police had urged the students to restrict the them to the University as the permission to march to the Parliament had been rejected. 

JMI Chief Proctor Waseem Ahmed had also requested the students to move back. He had said, "I request both students and police to deal with the situation in a calm manner. I appeal to students to move back.”

 

 

The police have allegedly attacked some women taking part in the protest who were being protected by men who formed a human chain around them as they marched ahead. According to reports, the exact number of injured students is unknown. The situation is reported to be under control now, injured students have been taken to the hospital and the rest have stopped at Julena. 

This is the second report of police brutality on the students of Jamia after December 15, 2019. On January 30, an armed man opened fire at the students of JMI injuring one.
