Several students protested outside the Delhi University’s Indraprastha College for Women against alleged harassment of the college students were detained by police.
According to the Left affiliated All India Students’ Association (AISA), some of the protesters were manhandled. Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has issued a notice to the city police and IP College over alleged harassment of women students during a college fest.
The DCW said it has been reported that some men entered the college during the fest and harassed the students. Some men also allegedly tried to enter a hostel meant for girl students, it said. Earlier, the students had gathered to stage a protest after some men scaled the college’s boundary walls during a fest and misbehaved with the women students on Tuesday. “AISA activists had called for a protest at 11 am on March 29 demanding accountability on behalf of the Delhi Police and arrest of those involved in the harassment of students.
The Delhi Police showed up and brutally detained several of our activists in the most inhumane way possible,” the students body said in a statement. It further said the student activists were taken to the Burari police station.“This entire incident is a proof of the Delhi Police’s inability to stand for justice and catch the real culprits.
