Take action against Anurag Thakur, Pravesh Singh and Kapil Mishra: Jamia Coordination Committee to Delhi Police

Devesh Shrivastava, Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police asserted that the march was taken out without permission. Police have refuted the allegations of inaction.

The ‘Jamia Coordination Committee’ and the Alumni Association have filed a complaint with the Station House Officer (SHO) of New Friends colony, asking for the registration of an FIR against Union Minister Anurag Thakur, BJP leader Kapil Mishra and Parvesh Verma in connection with the Thursday’s Jamia firing incident. They have also urged police to register FIR against the shooter who had been identified as one Gulshan Sharma (name changed), a resident of Jewar in Greater Noida.

The complaint also names BJP MPs Anurag Thakur, Pravesh Singh and MLA Kapil Mishra

Blaming the Delhi police of being in collaboration with the shooter the Association in its press release said: “The increasing intensity of terrorism and police’s collaboration with them has to be immediately recognised as Hindutva terrorism. The time is such that a pro-CAA terrorist can open fire unchallenged in front to hundreds of policemen, while peaceful anti-CAA and NRC protests are broken with lathis and arrests”.
