Re-investigate anti-CAA protests: AMU studentstext_fields
Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) : A delegation of students from Aligarh Muslim University met Additional Director General (ADG), Agra zone, Ajay Anand and sought re-investigation into December 15 anti-CAA protest.
The students, led by the varsity's registrar Abdul Hamid, in their memorandum also urged police to drop charges against those who are " innocent".
ADG Anand has assured them that their demands will be looked into.
"Not all students should be named on the basis of recovery of motorcycles by the police from the spot after the incident as many of them are innocent. The charges should be framed only after the re-investigation," said the memorandum.
It further said that the students, who do not have a criminal record, should not be punished for the "politically-motivated" incident.
It was also mentioned in the memorandum that no action has been taken against the police personnel for using disproportionate force against students.
Last year, on December 15, over 70 people including AMU students, security guards and a dozen policemen including the then DIG Aligarh range, Preetinder Singh, were injured in the campus violence following the students' protests over the CAA.
The district police had registered two FIRs into the matter and arrested 26 people, including seven AMU students.
Later, they were released on conditional bail. The Rapid Action Force (RAF) had also registered an FIR against 1,000 unidentified protesters under various sections of IPC into the matter.
