Policemen facing PIL after assaulting students in Ramjas Violence

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed against the policemen who were involved in assaulting the students and journalists at Ramjas College. This action was taken by the Delhi high court after two students from the Delhi University Law department approached them on March 1.

The policemen during a protest at Ramjas allegedly assaulted the students part of it. The two students who took the issue to high court are Tarun Narang and Deepak Joshi. Both of them are Law students in Delhi University only.

In the PIL, they have asked for an independent committee to examine what led to the huge protests at the University last week. The committee will include senior Delhi Police officials.

Another demand is that there should be cases against the Police officers involved under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code. It is most likely that the hearing will be this week.

All this Violence began in Delhi University last week when the All India Students Association (AISA) and the ABVP went into a scuffle after Ramjas College called the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid for a talk.

Anmol Ratan to be under judicial custody

A Delhi Court on Thursday sent Anmol Ratan, accused for the rape of a Ph.D student from JNU , for 14-day judicial custody. Ratan was missing from the time the complaint was lodged against him, but was finally capitulated at the Vasant Kunj Police Station on Wednesday evening.

A 28-year old fellow PhD student filed a rape case against Ratan, who was the former AISA president, earlier this week  According to the reports, the girl was looking for a movie called ‘Sairat’. Rattan called her to his hostel room to give her the movie and allegedly raped her there by spiking her drink.

After the complaint All India Student Association acted firmly against the activist and expelled his primary membership, reported The Indian Express.

ANI also reported that in a statement later AISA said, “The fact that a leading activist of ours is accused of sexual violence calls of serious introspection and re-invigorating the process of sensitization against sexual violence within and outside the organization.”

The court has asked jail authorities to provide proper medical facilities to Ratan after he submitted his medical reports regarding heart malady.
