The National Human Rights Commission has issued a notice to the Delhi Police Commissioner on a complaint that police personnel attacked a female student and snatched cameras from media persons, who were recording the incident outside Ramjas College in Delhi University Campus on February 22.

Some journalists covering the clashes were allegedly slapped, punched and kicked by the policemen.

The commission has taken on record complaints as well as media reports making similar allegations including threats to some students on social media. The commission has given him four weeks to submit a detailed report in the matter.

Over two days last week, there was violence at Delhi University’s north campus. Last Tuesday, ABVP activists pelted stones at Ramjas college auditorium to protest an invite to JNU student Umar Khalid, who has been accused of sedition.

A day later, it was a street fight when the students who believe in the Left ideology decided to protest what happened on Tuesday. Students were manhandled and even the media was not spared.
