Two students of Delhi University , Anjali and Abhigyan, the cadres of All India Student’s’ Association (AISA), alleged that they were locked inside their flat by Delhi Police ahead of PM Narendra Modi’s varsity visit.
“Comrade @abhigyan_AISA and I, we are being held at our flat because PM is coming to campus! Why is @narendramodi so afraid of us?” tweeted Anjali.
Anjali is the secretary of AISA Delhi University unit.
“Whole campus turned into police canton,” she alleged.
Anjali shared photos on Twitter showing herself and her colleague confined within the flat. One of the placards she held read, “We were detained at our flat based on suspicion.” Similarly, Abhigyan’s placard stated, “Prior to Modi’s visit, we were held at our flat for 3.5 hours.”
Anjali said to Maktoob: “Comrade Abhigyan and I were held at our flat. We weren’t allowed to go out. Even after continously asking, the police did not produce any legal document as to why they are keeping us under house arrest. They told us it is based on the “circle of suspicion”. I can’t understand how exactly students who study in an university becomes threat to the PM.”
She went on to say: “Is asking questions unconstitutional? Is asking for accountability for all those lynchings, violence unleashed on minorities, crushing of dissent, unemployment, fee hike, illegal now?”
