New Delhi: An alliance of civil society organizations and activists on Monday demanded that the government launch a high-level judicial inquiry into alleged police excesses against the students of Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University.
Addressing a press conference, members of the alliance also demanded that all cases registered against those protesting the amended citizenship law be "unconditionally" withdrawn and those arrested be immediately released.
Ravi Nair, a member of the alliance, said, "We have taken stock of the situation in a meeting. We are not looking for amendments, we want scrapping of CAA lock stock and barrel."
