Litigation Response by HRLN against police brutality in Jamia Milia Islamia

Date : 11/04/2020

On the 15th of December 2019 when students of Jamia Milia Islamia wanted to peacefully march towards the parliament as a mode of protest, the Delhi Police brutally cracked down on them charged at students with lathis and tear gas shells. Furthermore, without permission from the administration, the police entered the college premises, entered the library and classrooms and labs and brutally and inhumanly beat up students who were studying .

As a response to such blatant violence against students Human Rights Law Network approached the Supreme Court of India to ask for justice. The Supreme Court of India referred the case back to the High Court of Delhi, where the petitions are now presently being heard. Amongst the injuries the students faced, there was a student who was blinded due to the blows of the police and there was a student whose both hands were broken as a result of police carnage.

This then bled into a continuing police presence in Jamia, where there would be both stray instance of violence where people would enter the premises and open fire at students, there was an instance where a person opened fire at students from Jamia wherein a student faced an injury on his hand. There were multiple other stray incidents where people would come near the premises and open fire and leave.
