In consequence to the incident that took place in the premises of the University of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), the students of the Institute on 13th January 2019 surrounded the Vice Chancellor (VC), Najma Akhtar’s office.

With a demand to launch an FIR in response to the recent violent clashes caused by the Delhi Police, students came together singing slogans and carrying posters around the VC’s residence and office. The protestors also demanded a delay in their examinations which Akhtar, after consultations with the Deans, Head of Departments, and other officials, accepted and announced the new schedule regarding the examinations to be declared later.

Faizan Salik, a Student of JMI said “‘There was a sense of insecurity among students after the incidents that happened a month back, the students wanted the Vice Chancellor to encounter them and affirm them about their security, they further wanted a reschedule of examination as many departments felt that their schedule could have been along with others and not with gaps which would stop them to come together. “

The Vice Chancellor assured the students of the University following all the possible steps for the registration of the FIR, she further told that apart from writing letters to joint CP southern range and DCP crime for the registration of FIR the institution has also given a complaint to the SHO Jamia Nagar along with its photocopies sent to CP Delhi and DCP South East.

As per Ahmed Azeem, PRO media coordinator NHC has already started the enquiry and has visited the institution. Also, another team is scheduled to come to record the statements of the victim students to investigate the matters in detail. In further interaction with the students the VC said,”Delhi Police is not registering an FIR. They entered the campus without our permission and we have submitted our report with the government.” 

The entire interaction, though noisy proceeded with peace and satisfaction of the protesting students.
