DU students on stir allege assault by cops


NEW DELHI: Students of Delhi University’s mathematics division who're on a starvation strike alleged they had been assaulted by means of the police on Thursday evening. They are protesting towards the failure of 88% of students in a single paper of their examination. Three students, claiming that university administration has no longer replied to their pleas, publicly withdrew their admissions from the dep..

Ravindran Verma, a last year student who used to be on starvation strike from March nine, claimed that he used to be forcibly picked up and used to be taken to the Hindu Rao health center. “My well being used to be advantageous but if the police came, they pushed all the students around claiming I wasn’t well and had to be hospitalised. They assaulted probably the most students who had been with me in harmony,” Verma said.


The Maths students had been protesting towards the university for weeks after 35 out of the entire 40 second-year students failed a paper — Computational Fluid Dynamics within the 3rd semester.


Three students — one first-year and two second-year on Friday publicly cancelled their admissions in a “symbolic gesture to beef up the protesting students.”


When contacted, the Head of the dep. of mathematics refused to comment. Police also refused to comment at the allegations of attack.
