The Jamia violence hearing commenced today (December 19, 2019) before the Delhi High Court. These pleas seek a judicial enquiry into the alleged violence committed by the police against the University students.

The pleas were being heard by a Division Bench of the Delhi High Court headed by Chief Justice DN Patel.

A petition states that 452 tear gas cannons were fired, in highest ever numbers since 2012. It also alleged that the Chief Proctor of the Jamia Millia Islamia University never permitted the Delhi Police to enter the campus. Further claims state that 52 students have been seriously injured and no medical assistance has been provided to them. Allegedly, the petitioners sought an independent enquiry because according to them the police cannot be expected to investigate the matter being a party to the case itself.

Advocate Vinay Garg, appearing for the Petitioner, argued that the police should be prevented from initiating any proceedings against the students. All petitions relating to protests in Delhi were merged and heard together including petitions challenging detention, seeking relief and release of Jamia students.
