The vice chancellor said the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has already begun the inquiry into the police action against the students. An NHRC team has already visited the university and another team is scheduled to come on Tuesday to record the statement of the “victims”, she said.
On Monday, the students barged into the office premises after breaking the lock on the main gate and raised slogans against the vice-chancellor and demanded an FIR against the Delhi Police.
On December 15, as violence over the anti-citizenship amendment act flared up, the Delhi Police entered the campus and cracked down on students.
According to students, police laid seige to the campus and those injured were not even allowed to get medical attention. Students said windows of the library were smashed and around 50-60 students were inside when policemen gheraoed it.
Akhtar tried to pacify the students who were unwilling to relent. Students said if police are not ready to register the FIR, then they are ready to march till a cognizance of their complaint is taken.
In a statement, the university said the administration will take all possible measures to address the concerns of students.
