Jamia

Jamia students have been widely speaking about thus traumatic experience but, to date, no statutory body, has initiated any independent probe.

Just two months after the alleged police brutality inside Jamia campus, another CCTV footage has emerged showing policemen beating up students.

On December 15, a protest against the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) turned violent after protesters allegedly pelted stones at the police and set public buses on fire. While there were serious allegations that the police entered the college library and beat up the students, who weren’t protesting, no FIR has, to date been registered, nor a probe ordered.

On Saturday, February 15, another such video was released by the Jamia students. The 44-second video showed policemen wearing anti-riot gear, entering the library. There were around 10-20 students inside as cops thrashed the students with batons and pushed them outside the hall.

While sharing the video clipping on the micro blogging site, Twitter,   the Jamia Coordination Committee has claimed that the incident took place on the first floor of MA, MPhil section inside Old Reading Hall on December 15. The tweet also said, “Shame on you Delhi Police.”

Sabrangindia has also learned of a huge destruction of library books and manuscripts during the police assault bit authorities refuse to confirm this.

 

 

Jamia authorities confirmed that the video was from inside the library but haven’t released an official statement yet.

RP Meena, DCP (south-east) is reported by The Indian Express to have said,  “The case is being probed by the crime branch. We will check whether the video is with them and also the authentication of the video. We can comment once the video is checked.”

Special Commissioner (Crime) Praveer Ranjan assured that the police will investigate the latest video. “We have taken cognizance of the latest video (of December 15) of Jamia Millia Islamia University which has surfaced now, we will investigate it,” Ranjan told reporters.
