sjaA First Information Report (FIR) has been registered against 1000 unidentified students of Aligarh Muslim University amidst the protest that broke out during the anti- Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) earlier this month, reports said.

The local police earlier told that an FIR had been registered against 10,000 unidentified students but the reporting agency later quoted that the senior UP police officer stated that it was lodged against 1000 students.

A news agency quoted the FIR saying “They unlawfully raised anti-national slogans. The students pelted stones on personnel and vandalised official vehicles,”

The FIR also stated the police had been instructed to use minimal force. “When they did not disperse, tear gas and less intensity lathi-charge was done”.

The students of the university have been charged under various sections of Indian Penal Code.

It is worth reminding that after a peaceful protest by Delhi’s Jamia Milia students, it had also been taken up by Aligarh University’s pupils on December 15 that had ended in confrontation with the police who were alleged of disproportionate force after a brutal crackdown that included storming into the campus and detaining around 100 students.
