Ramjas college row: Hearing on 19 July

Statesman News Service | New Delhi |

A Delhi court on Tuesday fixed 19 July for hearing a plea seeking the lodging of an FIR in the Ramjas College incident in which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised in February this year.

After the court was informed that a transfer application filed by the Delhi Police Crime Branch was pending before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM), the matter has been listed for further hearing on the next date by Metropolitan Magistrate Abhilash Malhotra.

CMM Satish Kumar Arora had marked it to the court of magistrate Malhotra after the filing of the complaint by advocate Vivek Garg.

The police plea was opposed by complainant Garg, arguing that it had been delaying the matter and hesitating to file a proper action taken report. It was also alleged that the police was not willing to enquire into the incidents.

According to the police status report, the Commissioner of Delhi Police has set up a probe panel which has been going into complaints relating to the incidents that occurred on February 21-22 this year.

As many as 62 witnesses have examined so far, including students and police officials.

The complaint being heard by the court related to the lodging of an FIR with regard to the February incidents when anti-national slogans were allegedly raised at Ramjas College by AISA and SFI members.

The plea had said a similar incident occurred in JNU last year. It alleged that “massive anti-national slogans/ activities were being carried out by leaders/students of AISA/SFI in Ramjas College, shamelessly and openly which supported India's enemy i.e. Pakistan.

The criminal acts of accused were also boosting morale of terrorists against our country.
