Cops accused of sexually assaulting two students

Thursday, 14 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

A protest was carried out by various civil society groups outside the Delhi Police headquarters in the national Capital following the alleged sexual assault of two women students by police personnel during a recent protest.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Left-affiliated All India Students’ Association (AISA) had alleged that two women students were sexually assaulted by Delhi Police personnel while they were participating in a protest outside Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s residence on October 10. The allegations were rejected by the Delhi Police as “totally baseless”.

On Wednesday, around 60 activists gathered outside the Delhi Police headquarters at Ashoka Road and raised slogans against the force. They demanded that the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Chanakyapuri be sacked for allegedly instructing police personnel to assault women protesters.

Members of the AISA were detained on Sunday as they staged a protest near Amit Shah’s residence here demanding the expulsion of Union Minister of State Ajay Mishra over the October 3 Lakhimpur Kheri violence in which Mishra’s son is accused of mowing down four farmers and a journalist with his vehicle.

The protesters were immediately detained and forcibly removed by the Delhi Police, the AISA said in a statement, adding that the women protesters were targeted separately for sexual assault.
