Several students studying at the University of Delhi on 10th Feb 2020, who marched in solidarity with the protesting farmers against the widely non-acceptable three farm laws were allegedly manhandled on Wednesday by the Delhi Police.
Delhi University students and Members of the All India Students’ Association (AISA) put forward slogans of immediate abolition of the proposed three farm laws and discharge of all arrested generals. As per the reports, the police allegedly mishandled the Delhi University students who were marching in solidarity to support Indian farmers’ agitation.
As per the statement released by the All India Students’ Association (AISA), the Delhi police tried to halt the march at Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institution, however, the students continued to march towards the DU Faculty of Arts.
The statement added that the Delhi police resorted to violence upon entering into the faculty and further manhandled and injured several students.
Secretary of AISA Delhi University, Ritwik Raj said that the Haryana Police and Delhi Police have formulated a warzone at the Delhi-Haryana borders. The new demon of aandolanjeevi will not help and the democratic representatives of India shall continue combatting fascism. He asserted that the Indian government must immediately discharge Nodeep Kaur and all other arrested farmers.
The student protesters called off the march by administering a public meeting at DU arts faculty with speakers from various organizations including the Democratic Students’ Union, AISA, and Bhagat Singh Chhatra Ekta Manch.
However, a police officer had denied all the allegations of manhandling and causing violence at the march.
