FIR has been registered against 1000-1200 unidentified Aligarh Muslim University students for carrying out a candle light protest march on campus on December 23. Case filed under IPC sections 188 and 341 for flouting CRPC section 144, blocking the road and for preventing government officers from discharging their duty.
Students of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), along with their parents and non-teaching staff of the varsity, on Monday resumed their protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC). The students took out a candle march in solidarity with the injured students of AMU and with their counterparts in Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia, who faced brutal police crackdown. The protest in AMU is continuing despite the campus being closed till January 5 and hostels being vacated after the university administration decided to suspend all classes.
The students are demanding action against AMU Vice-Chancellor Tariq Mansoor, Registrar S Abdul Hamid and the Aligarh Police.
