Students’ protest outside Delhi Police headquarters

New Delhi : Scores of students from different political wings on Tuesday staged a protest outside the Delhi Police headquarters against an incident of alleged cop brutality with students protesting outside the RSS headquarters in Jhandewalan with regard to the suicide of Dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula.

Students from the All India Students’ Association (AISA), Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) protested shouting slogans against the Delhi Police.

The Delhi Police is facing their ire after a two-day-old video surfaced showing men in police uniform, and even in civil dress, ruthlessly beating up some students.

The students targeted in the video were reportedly protesting against the tragic death of Hyderabad University Dalit scholar Vemula.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to express his ire over the incident, saying that the Delhi Police was being used as a private army by the BJP and the RSS.

Kejriwal also attacked the Narendra Modi government, accusing it of being “at war with students all across”. (ANI)
