Male police brutally grabbed, molested, tossed and beat female students and faculties alike. Female faculties were grabbed by their hair and dragged into vans. Male students were swept inside the van and were beaten without mercy. When I ran after them questioning that, police harassed me. They asked where I am from and when I told them its none of their business, they made a pass on my skin tone and threatened to teach me how to behave and tried to chase me away. They were doing the same to other students. They were rounding up stranded students and started chasing them beating.. Many of us are in health center and some are moved outside. 3 vans of students are arrested by now.
Shame on you VC for facilitating this violence against your own students!

A student was asked his name while getting arrested by the police.
He said, Ajmal.
The police say Oh you are Muslim, you must be arrested!
WTF! No idea where we are heading!

Yesterday: Brutal Lathicharge, 36 arrested including three professors, beaten up badly in custody.
RAF snatched our cameras, threatened with rape, groped and molested female protestors.
The Internet is cut off. Water is cut off. Messes are closed.
And today, the police chases away all media from the campus. They have guns, shields, bulletproof vests and lathis, who is violent here? No media, no internet. And no way for anyone to know what goes on in campus.
The university is a public space. How can the state not allow media in?
And all the media is reporting is of student vandalism, not the fact that ABVP students were already in with the VC, and orchestrating everything.
Media is also ignoring the article in the SCST atrocities act which states how the accused cannot return to his village (or, in this case, the university) until the courts clear it. How hypocritic of the sanghi VC and the khakhi-bhagwa police to talk of constitution and respect!

Condemn the brutal attack of telangana police on us the university of hyderabad students.
They dragged and lifted the students unexpectedly with no provocation and later lathi charged and assaulted verbally and physically. Many students have scratch marks in their bodies made by a blade like a weapon.
Male policemen attacked the female students with no mercy and violated all kinds of ethics. What provoked them to this extent is still not clear.
The university now seems to be under police control. policemen are wandering all over threatening the students. this cannot be tolerated…
Moreover, they have arrested students and faculty baselessly. We demand the immediate and unconditional release of all the 36 students and two faculties arrested illegally.
We shall fight until justice is delivered.

What is going on in university of hyderabad? It is worst than a prison house. Why is media silent?
Kuffir Nalgundwar , Ambedkarite activist.
I’ve only heard of the police brutality..but to see it happening to ppl you know…to hear of stories of the supposed ‘upholders of law’…stories of the beating the shit out of student…students who were protesting for justice..For what is right…to hear of such stories seams surreal.
I know of female students who got hit in the stomach repeatedly..girls were getting hit not by the female police but by males who shamelessly threatened to rape them…There are students with broken bones and torn ligaments…
Close to 35 students were arrested and 2 faculty members. Their whereabouts are still unknown…
The phones of several students were confiscated and some were even broken…
Our university has fallen into an undeclared state of emergency….The small gate remaining shut and padlocked…wifi cut…mess closed…no water in the washroom. …no water to even drink…The debit cards issued by the university branch has been blocked…where is the VC going with all this? why is the VC disrupting the little normalcy that is present in the campus? that too so near the examination?
praying for the safe return of our students and faculty..
and ya there would be no mention of all this in the media!
