A local court on Thursday asked the Delhi Police to file a detailed action-taken report against those who allegedly raised anti-national slogans at the Delhi University’s Ramjas College.
Metropolitan Magistrate Abhilash Malhotra sought the report from the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police and listed the matter for further hearing on April 27.
The court’s instruction came after the Delhi Police filed a status report on Thursday. The court observed that the report was absolutely silent on the slogan-raising aspect of the incident on February 21.
The court also noted that the report was also absolutely silent in respect of the complainant and the charge of sedition that found a mention in the FIR.
The court was hearing a criminal complaint filed by Advocate Vivek Garg, who alleged that “massive anti-national slogans and activities were raised by leaders and students of the All India Students Association (AISA) and the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) in Ramjas College, shamelessly and openly supporting India’s enemy — Pakistan”.
“The criminal acts of the accused were also boosting morale of terrorists against our country,” the complainant said.
On February 21-22, members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the students wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, and activists of the Left-leaning AISA clashed on the Ramjas College campus.
