DU students demonstrate for victims’ justice


A rally was staged on Thursday at the north campus of Delhi University by a number of students calling for justice for those who they claim were harassed last week during an event at the Indraprastha College for Women.
The rally was called by the Left-backed All India Students Association (AISA). Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) activists also participated in the Rally. The protesting students demanded the resignation of the Indraprastha College for Women principal Poonam Kumria.
They said the rally was taken out to protest the “apathetic” IPCW and DU administrations which have “colluded to repress the movement of women students instead of taking immediate action in the matter”.“
AISA along with more than 300 students marched the length of north campus demanding justice to IPCW,” said Delhi AISA President Abhigyan. The protesting students submitted a memorandum to the DU Vice-Chancellor demanding the dismissal of the IPCW principal.
KYS, in a statement, said, “It should be noted that instead of taking immediate action on the demands of the protesting women students and activists, the DU and IPCW administrations have hitherto been adamant in their apathy.” “The IPCW administration has formed a so-called disciplinary committee and has asked students to come forward with their complaints.
