New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued notice to the Centre on a plea seeking a court-monitored probe into the police crackdown at Jamia Millia Islamia University on 15 December.
The division bench of Delhi high court, comprising Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar, also issued notices to the Delhi government and Delhi police and sought their response on the petition filed by a Jamia Millia student.
The student claimed he lost vision in one eye after the violence and is currently battling to save sight in the other.
Md Minhajuddin, the petitioner, sought compensation for his injuries and also lodging of an FIR against police personnel involved in the incident.
The petitioner sought directions to the concerned authorities to bear expenses of his treatment and also provide him permanent job commensurate with his qualifications.
On 15 December 2019, a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act near Jamia turned violent with public buses and private vehicles set on fire.
Police later entered Jamia, firing tear gas shells and baton-charging students.
Several students, including the petitioner, were injured in the police crackdown.
