Jamia Student Files Case Against Delhi Police, Seeks Compensation
Mohammad Mustafa, a second-year MA student who was injured during the protest at Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia in December 2019, has filed a case against the Delhi Police in the High Court demanding compensation of Rs 1 crore, ANI reported on Tuesday, 18 February. This comes amid the furore over the two videos that recently emerged of Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia University — one from the Jamia Coordination Committee and another reportedly from Delhi Police sources each trying to tell a different version of the events from 15 December 2019, when the Delhi Police entered the campus and allegedly unleashed violence on students."That day, I was studying in the library from morning onwards. Around 6 pm, police entered the premises without any warning and started lathi charging at everybody. I was beaten too even though I was not connected to any protest," Mustafa said. He also stated that he had three demands - compensation, an FIR and an independent inquiry into the matter.
