Jamia Violence: Students gherao VC’s office, demands FIR against police

Students of Delhi’s Jamia Milia Islamia University encircled the Vice-Chancellor, Najma Akhtar’s office today demanding a registration of FIR against Delhi Police in light of last year’s violence on campus.

Among other demands, the students have called for rescheduling of examinations and security of students. The students barged into the office premises after breaking the lock on the main gate.


The students have staged a sit-in outside the office, demanding the Vice Chancellor to interact with them over the issue.

On December 15, 2019, an anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protest called by the students and residents of Jamia Milia Univeristy and Jamia Nagar turned violent when Delhi Police used batons to disperse the crowds. About 200 students and residents were injured during the clash.
