Crime Branch Summons 10 Jamia Millia Students for Questioning
NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 20— The Crime Branch of the Delhi Police has reportedly summoned 10 students of the Jamia Millia Islamia for questioning over the December 15 incident.
Media reports say some of 10 students are those who were detained following the violence on that day but were released late in the night.
The anti-CAA protest of Jamia students and local residents had turned violent on December 15 afternoon. In the evening, police and CRPF personnel had barged into the campus and beat up students inside the university library, several CCTV footages showed in the last one week. Following the CCTV videos going public and broadcast on TV channels, a team of Delhi Police Crime Branch had visited Jamia university on Tuesday. In the charge sheet filed by the Delhi police on February 13, no Jamia student was named. However, the police had named JNU research scholar Sharjeel Imam as the main instigator for the violence. Imam was arrested in January for his controversial speech that he made at an anti-CAA protest at Aligarh Muslim University.
Several state-run buses were torched by unidentified persons near Jamia Millia on December 15. In the subsequent police crackdown on the campus of Jamia, several students were seriously injured – some got their hands and legs fractured and one student sustained hard hit on his eye and he lost vision.
