Another video of Dec 15 night at Jamia University released, shows students inside library
New Delhi : A fresh video of December 15 incident at the Jamia Millia Islamia University has been released on the internet where Delhi Police officials can be seen attacking the unarmed students inside a library they chose to hide inside.
In a five-minute long video, released by Maktoob media, several students can be seen entering the old reading room, dragging a table and whatever they can get their hands on to block entry for the cops.
The video later shows how the Delhi Police officials break the door and make a forced entry and start hurling their sticks on them while the students plead to move out from the place.
One can also see students trying to desperately break out the reading room as the police continue to assault them. The angle of the CCTV (in the video) is such that one cannot see what is happening in the extreme left (see screengrab). But it seems like the entrance is not big enough for the students to escape.
Soon though, the video shows more police and paramilitary force barging in through the other side of the door and now the students are seen trapped between two sets of uniformed men. The video released by Maktoob media is among a series of videos which purportedly show what happened on 15 December at Jamia Milia Islamia. The police have launched a separate investigation to verify the veracity of these videos.
Another video went viral on social media, showing persons being ushered into the library, allegedly with stones in some of their hands. As soon as 15-20 persons entered the library, a table was dragged and placed to block the entry point. The Crime Branch sources told India Today that the police were trying to locate these men after some vehicles were torched outside the university during Jamia violence.
However, as per a JCC statement, students hid in the room to remain safe amid the violence.
