Protests against Delhi police brutalities on women students at Jamia, inaction at Gargi College

It was reported that at least 10 women protestors at Jamia were hit on their private parts by the Delhi Police

Sabrangindia 12 Feb 2020

Protest

The students of CEPT University in Ahmedabad had called for an emergency protest to condemn the brutality of the Delhi Police on the students of the Jamia Millia Islamia University (JMI) and its inaction in the case of the incident of sexual assault at the Gargi College.

The protest was held at Sabarmati Ashram on February 12 from 5 – 7 PM. According to a participant, the protest started as scheduled, but the police dispersed the protestors 20 minutes later. The crowd then moved to protest at Nataraj Cinemas, near HK College of Arts, Ashram Road.

The police asked the peaceful protestors who were holding placards, to move away and stop their protest.

 

 

 

Allegedly, more than 10 women students were hit on their private parts and were found to have blunt trauma injuries the doctors said of the police attack on the students at JMI. Some students also suffered internal injuries as they had reportedly been hit on the chest with lathis, India Today reported.

At the all-girls Gargi College which was holding an annual fest, the students faced an onslaught of drunk men even with a heavy presence of police and security persons. The students were groped and molested and witnessed a display of sexual behaviour from the men who were not college students as affirmed by the students. The Principal, Promila Kumar denied having any knowledge of such an incident taking place in the college.

The current atmosphere in the wake of the anti-CAA-NPR_NRC protests has shown the brutality of not just the Delhi Police, but also the Uttar Pradesh police with regards to brutalities on women. Women protestors have been beaten up by the police – both male and female officials, several times and still continue to be attacked.

The complete nonchalance of the Delhi Police with regards to handling the incident at Gargi College just goes to show the complacency with regards to women’s safety in colleges. The police have not taken any accountability for their action and inaction and continue to either be passive observers, be it in the case of the Jamia shootout or puppets in the hands of the Central government.
