The plea was heard was Additional Judicial Magistrate Kuldeep Singh. After the dismissal of the bail plea, a large number of students gathered at Bab-e-Syed gate and started protesting which continued for about three hours. Prosecution Officer Indrajeet Pal who was opposing the bail plea of Talib said, “I opposed his bail plea, as the crime was serious in nature”.
Talib, a student of B.A. second year, was arrested by the police on Sunday night. Members of Student Union had come out in protest after Talib’s arrest and had surrounded the police station. However, they had returned after they were shown evidence by the police in support of his arrest. Hamza Sufiyan, Vice Chairman of the Students’ Union said that they would meet district administration officials who had assured of Talib’s early release.
Some AMU students had allegedly harassed a Republic TV crew including a journalist named Nalini Sharma who was reporting live from the campus. The journalist had alleged that the AMU students took away their equipment as the police stationed outside the gates of the university stood there watching.
