NEW DELHI: Hundreds of students held a demonstration at Jamia Millia Islamia on Thursday to mark the third anniversary of Delhi Police's action against protesting students in 2019.
However, the university administration said the students took out a candlelight vigil to mark the anniversary of the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act protests. Students have claimed there was a heavy police deployment in view of the demonstration.
"It is not a protest but a candlelight vigil by Jamia students to commemorate the anniversary of the anti-CAA protests and the police action on students. The university gatekeepers had to ensure no outsider enters and there is no untoward incident," a university official said.
On 13 December 2019, the students of Jamia Millia Islamia University held a march protesting against the CAA. The police on December 15, 2019, had allegedly stormed the library while looking for "outsiders" who were involved in arson and violence during an anti-CAA protest outside the campus. Hundreds of police officers entered the campus and detained more than a hundred students during the confrontation with the protesters. Thousands of people protested outside the Delhi Police Headquarters immediately after the attack.
