A case has been registered at the Civil Lines police station against five-six unidentified people, including expelled student leader Hamza Sufiyan and former Vice President of Students’ Association Nadeem Ansari, for allegedly abusing the Proctor of Aligarh Muslim University during CAA protests. It is alleged that these students even showed and tried to attack the Proctor with shoe.
The incident happened on January 17, at about 2:30 PM when a sit-in protest was going on at Babay Syed Gate. Security Inspector Haseen Ahmad Khan of Proctor’s Office reportedly said that like daily, Proctor arrived with his team to keep an eye on external and anti-social elements.
It is alleged that as soon as the proctor arrived, former Vice President Nadeem Ansari and the expelled student leader Hamza Sufiyan incited some others against the Proctorial team and started indecency. The accused student leader went on a rampage after the abuse.
A video of the incident had gone viral where a student could be heard calling the proctor a “dalla” (pimp) while another is seen showing a shoe to him. The agitated proctor, in turn, was heard saying “haan hum hain dalle” (yes we are pimps). Many police personnel could be seen standing helplessly watching the students brazen it out when the Proctor tried to negotiate.
As of now, a case has been registered against Nadeem Ansari and Hamza Sufiyan for obstructing, abetting and showing indecency in the government work. The matter is being investigated.
