University to be opened in phased manner, notification soon: AMU

After violent clashes at Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia, police on December 15 cracked down on Aligarh Muslim University students over their protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. The violent clashes left at least four students severely injured.

According to a report of The Quint, one of the victim injured students admitted in AMU’s Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital, told that he nearly lost his entire hand to a tear gas shell that exploded in his hand. Another claimed that he sustained two fractures to his thumb and had received about 20 stitches to his hand.

Maskoor Usmani, President of the AMU Students’ Union tweeted a picture showing a student, ostensibly a victim, lying prone on the ground.

Sociologist Nandini Sundar also expressed her distress following a visit to Aligarh Muslim University in a series of tweets. She wrote,

“Just returned from Aligarh, AMU. Two students in ICU with severe head injuries, two students in plastic surgery ward with hands blown off by stun grenades. At least 70 with minor injuries who didn’t register for MLC because they were scared of being targeted later.”

AMU was one of the first campuses to respond to the chaotic, alarming scenes that unfolded in and around Jamia Millia Islamia. A demonstration against the CAA turned violent near Jamia’s premises, and the Delhi Police responded by entering the university and using what eyewitnesses say was indiscriminate force.
