The Delhi High Court on Tuesday disposed off a plea seeking action against cops for allegedly manhandling students and journalists in the Ramjas College incident.
Last week, students from Delhi University's law department approached the High Court for action against those cops responsible for assaulting students and scribes.
Two of Delhi University law students Tarun Narang and Deepak Joshi filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the matter and sought formation of an independent committee of senior Delhi Police officials to investigate what led to massive protests in the college.
In the PIL, students also demanded that police lodge cases under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the police officers.
On February 22, the All India Students Association (AISA) and the ABVP engaged into a scuffle over cancellation of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid's talk at Delhi University's Ramjas College.
Following the emerging reports about the extreme violence, the National Human Rights Commission issued a notice to the Delhi Police commissioner.
However, the Delhi Police had called for strict action, while asserting that few policemen's unprofessional actions were also noticed in handling law and order situation during the scuffle.
